The problem is that the academy ALO did the ROTC interview, then discussed son with Detach. Comm. and passed along Detach. Comm. questions to us. What are son's plans? What difference does that make, until he has offers in writing, he has nothing. He applied to two SA's and ROTC. They know this. I know the Detach. Comm. wants to save time and energy and doesn't want to offer a scholarship to someone who is holding out for an academy appointment. I don't care. I care about my son being asked hypothetical questions about offers not yet made. Having the ALO privy to this exchange compromises son's ability to act as an independent decision maker. It's heavy handed, and it stinks. He is being offered a gamble.
