Paul’s Uncles Mike and Pete served in the Navy, and his uncle Dan served as a teacher at the Coast Guard Academy. Since his childhood, he had seen how the Academy is and how the military has influenced their life.

As a teenager, he wanted to do some cool stuff with the military, and he thought it would be a cool career choice in life. However, a person’s liking and priorities change with time and age. Maybe his change in preference and goal made him transfer from Air Force to LSU.
