Two local students were honored today by Representative Greg Walden after they were accepted to presitgious military academies. TJ Morgan of Klamath Falls was accepted to the United States Air Force Academy and Rosemary Weston of Ashland was accepted into the United States Naval Academy.

"The academy has accepted our recommendations," Walden exclaimed. "So it's celebrating their next step in life, honoring their parents, and realizing we've got a great future with kids like this willing to serve."

Rosemary explained it was an honor to meet congressman Walden and the panel that nominated her for a position at the Naval Academy.

Her parents lauded her accomplishments. Her father, Cael Weston detailed, "She got one of the top athletic awards, she speaks German, she speaks Chinese, she's taken calculus and I mean just a very, very well rounded driven student."

Rosemary also wants to be one of the first female Navy Seals. Rep. Walden is confident she can achieve it.

"She was the first female football player at St. Mary's...and a wrestler and sets high goals for herself and achieves them or exceeds them," he explained. "She likes to be pushed and so I think you see the talent that's here and I think she's got every bit of chance at being a navy seal as anybody else."

Her family says they'll miss her like crazy but if the U.S. was ever to go to war, she'd be the first anyone would want by their side.
