Nebraska teen accepted to all five military academies sets out to serve America

NEWYou can now listen to Fox News articles!

High school senior Noble Rasmussen intends to serve his country well — and all five U.S. military academies seem to agree.

The Nebraska teen joined “Fox & Friends” on Friday to celebrate his acceptance to all five academies.

He then announced on the program that he’ll be attending the United States Air Force Academy in June.

Rasmussen, a cadet with the Civil Air Patrol, said that his interest in applying to each school was sparked from a desire to represent and serve the United States as a whole.

“I want to serve my country the best I can,” he said. 

“So applying to all academies [presented] the option to serve anywhere.”

“I feel like it’s my duty to serve my country.”

While the “noble” sentiment of military service complements Rasmussen’s first name nicely, his mother, Cheri Rasmussen, said that was his parents’ exact intention when they named him.

“Our prayer for him his whole life was just to have that noble character of honor, honesty and integrity,” she said. “Just to kind of rise above and have that high moral principle.”

The young patriot advised other teens who may be interested in attending military academies as well to take academics, athletics and leadership opportunities in high school “a moment at a time” while building relationships along the way.
