A Major Move: Despite wait, Ricke heading off to Naval Academy

(Continued)

NEW ALBANY —

“I loved South Carolina. It was a great experience,” he said. “I know what college is like. I know how to study. I think that experience puts me a little ahead of the others coming in.”

He said he has received tremendous support from his family. He said the entire family will take one more vacation together this month before he leaves for Annapolis. He said his first time off will be at Thanksgiving and Christmas breaks.

While his time as a civilian is dwindling, he said he is making the most of his brief summer break. He has been working out daily, reading up on the Navy and “just relaxing.”

“I am just trying to live a normal life for the next few weeks,” he said.
