Essay on the following topic is required: Think about a time when you've had to plan for something important in your future. How did you plan to achieve success in the face of the unknown? How did you handle any challenges to reach your goal? How does your story connect to those of other people, past and present, who have had to face and overcome tremendous odds to obtain their goal? Use WWII as a starting point and base your essay in part on America's involvement in WWII. But don't stop in the past. Use specific examples from your own experiences that support your ideas.
