Its been quite the interesting 2 years around here. From turning down an appointment to the Naval Academy with a senatorial and congressional nomination to walking on as a college programmer to see if DS really did like the military and finally today recieving a 2 year scholarship. Maybe thats how it was meant to be. DS was never thrilled about going to Annapolis and turned it down May 1, 2010 the last possible day. Maybe I wanted it more than he did. He enrolled at a top public university that he loves, joined a fraternity that he loves and has excelled to near the top of his NROTC unit. Its all about the end result- getting a commission, graduating and enjoying the process. Good luck to all other programmers.
