    So for the first CVW form, Consent to Treatment of a Minor, do I sign it (the applicant) or does my dad sign it?

    If you are eighteen or older you will sign. Under eighteen (Minor) your parent will sign. I still get the tuition bills from school and the medical insurance premiums but unless my child allows it I can't see the college grades or under HIPPA any medical information (over eighteen)! Wonderful system, you pay the bills but are not allowed any information.

    My daughter, who attends college, will let you have access to her information if you pay her college bills. Will that work for you? As a bonus, she can head to your house every few weekends so you can buy her groceries too. .....But wait there's more. If you act now, and call within the next 15 minutes, we will let you pay for her spring break, and she will send you text updates about how much fun she is having.

    Well its actually the same thing at the Academy. You can only see their grades if a Mid signs up to allow it. Medical you won't see unless there is a severe issue and the Mid authorizes it. Only time my parents saw my grades was if I told them or showed them. So they never knew my grades. My parents only knew my medical after a surgery and our team doc called my parents to tell them I was doing okay because I asked him to. So not much different anywhere, except there is no tuition payment. But when it comes to spring break and extra spending money... yeap they will come asking!

    Yep. Privacy Act applies, depending on the mid's elections for release of academic, performance, conduct or medical info. As a BattO, when a parent called asking for info, I had to pull up MIDS (USNA mid info dbase) and determine what I could discuss. Never a pretty moment when mom or dad, possibly already irate about their understanding of a situation or lack of info, finds out DD or DS has elected "no." Many would then call their MOC, whose staffer would call me, and I would head for the support of the Commandant's JAG. Most parents were great. Some were not. Many times the whole thing could have been avoided if DD or DS had told DF or DM the entire truth in a timely manner.

    Oh yes. Disciplinary issues, all kinds of stuff. Actually, the way it really happens, is the MOC staffer sends the Congessional inquiry over to the Secretary of the Navy staffer, who sends it down to the Chief of Naval Operations staffer, who sends it for research and reply to the USNA Supe staffer, who would then task it to Commandant for action, and thence to lucky BattO. For ones where the MOC aide was savvy, it would be a quick and informal inquiry confirming Privacy Act applicability.

    All because DD or DS didn't quite lay out the entire set of facts.

    Apologies for shooting off on a tangent here.

    As I said, most parents are great. The ones who were royal PITAs, though, I will never forget.

    USAFA's SERE program came under scrutiny a few years ago because a parent complained to a MOC that the program was unduly stressful for their baby.

    You would be amazed how many parents don't recognize the mission or purpose of SAs in particular and the military in general.

    Though it didn't include a MOC call during a briefing to parents during a CVW, the presenter discussed the USNA ethics program and boiled it down to 'we help them understand when it is ok to kill people'

    2 separate parents wondered if that was really necessary. The presenter explained that in spite of all the nice things the USNA does sometimes it is necessary to bring kinetic energy to make the point. One parent asked what kinetic energy was and what it was used for.

    Parents don't change their stripes just because their baby moved out.

    I actually had one mom state quite proudly "I am a Cobra gunship mom when it comes to protecting my son."

    I've always been a Free Range parent myself. I've raised more than a few eyebrows of helicopter moms. :)

    I just can't fathom NOT letting my kids do everything for themselves. How else do they learn? Especially to be LEADERS! Gotta wonder if that new SWO's mom would call if he didn't get the ship she wanted for her baby lol!

    It happens all the time and even in the fleet. Parents will call their congressman all the time to wonder why Johnny or Janie didn't get a certain duty station or got in trouble or why they had to deploy. Same thing, Congressional Inquiry, usually 2-3 days to respond and the entire chain of command has to drop real work to deal with something that 99% of the time is a kid not telling their parents the truth about a situation. Oh and I am sure there are plenty of parents who have called about why they didn't aviation or the ship they wanted.
