DS has completed basic training and AIT and is in Natl Guard and attends a SMC. He is supposed to submit all of his paperwork for contracting to ROTC as soon as he gets accepted into a unit to be in SMP. He said he has 30 dayas to do this. The last thing he told me was he turned in a 104 form that had to do with his proposed graduation date. He was told now he needs to find a NG unit that will accept him into SMP. DS put together a resume which includes his gpa (3.9) PT scores 337, and clubs and leadership positions he has attained. He started his phone calls yesterday to NG units to see if they had any SMP openings and express interest. He said in every phone call so far he is interupted by the sergeants mid sentence and told "We don't need anyone." DS said he was frustrated and said it appears that no one wanted to hear what he had to say and he was not allowed to continue saying what he wanted to say and ask. I asked him if he should be speaking to a higher rank but he said that he was using the chain of command as he was supposed to. He did say one of the things he wanted to tell the sergeants answering the phone was if there was a specific person he could email his resume too but he said so far he is cut off before he can even get to that info. Please understand that I am still learning about this process my son is going through. DS said that to get contracted he must find a unit to accept him for SMP. Right now it does not look like anyone is interested. He told me one of his sergeant's (DS currently trains in the unit at his college) told him if he continued to have no luck that she would make a call to someone she knew but that the location was a 5 hour drive from his campus. She told him that SMP cadets were not popular with many units and that may be what he is running into. Any thoughts or ideas? I am eager to hear your comments about this. Thanks.
