Airforce Academy Alum And All American Joe Vasta

Airforce Academy Alum And All American Joe Vasta

Today’s show is a reboot of the lacrosse journey of Air Force Academy Alum and All American Joe Vasta. To hear the longer interview check out the link to our Athlete’s Blog and our podcast archive in the show notes. We are both natives of Croton on Hudson, New York and the beautiful Hudson Valley. Joe and I were high school teammates and I am proud to call him a friend. He unpacks everything you want to know about applying to a US military Academy. Joe comes from a large family. Between Joe his older brother Bob who attended West Point military Academy and their nieces and nephews, there are almost 6 Vastas who have graduated from US military academies. Let me make it plain folks, six people who attended some of the best schools in the country debt-free and receiving a monthly salary as members of the US Armed Forces throughout their undergraduate school experience. This interview is part of our larger series Going to College Debt-Free. Check out the show notes at the end of the podcast to learn more about that series as well as links to additional and related resources.
