My son is completing his 3rd year as a Midshipman at a NROTC unit. He never received a scholarship so he took a chance and joined the unit as a College Programmer. He was offered Advanced Standing in July 2011 and his stipend was delayed for numerous reasons - mostly due to medical exams being required several times. Well to date he has received 2 stipend payments in the last 4 weeks. I don't know if he has ever signed his paperwork. I have called the unit about the back pay stipend that I feel that his owed by Navy with no success. I feel that he has done everything expected of him; performing his duties and class work as a 2nd class satisfactorily and should receive the back stipend. He has had to get a part time job to meet expenses plus has had to use part of a college fund. We have been waiting so long for the Navy to do what is right. He has made it his dream/goal to be a Navy officer - he competed for USNA summer session, receiving a congressional nomination to the USNA, competed multiple times for 3, 2 & 1 year and Commander NROTC scholarships - all with no success. I don't know where to turn to fight for a few thousand dollars that is his by right.
