Just talked with son at LDAC this afternoon before they take their phones, said they had a long briefing today about Accessions and ROTC in general. Son mentioned something interesting, they said that as of now they are not going to have ROTC Battalions do any FTX's next year, they said they are trying to get away from the more tactical training. They didn't say what will be done as a replacement. Son chuckled since his first job next year was to plan FTX, not sure what he'll be planning now. Hard to keep up with all the changes these days, this forum will be very useful to applicants and new cadets as it seems AROTC is going through many transitions. Of course this could all change by next year if the ideas don't stick.
