My son will enter his senior (4th) year in Army ROTC next week. I received a call from him a bit ago with heartbreaking news. He received a DUI last night. I know he drinks; he is 22 so is not underage but aw clearly over the limit to be charged with DUI. He was stopped near campus driving 15 mph over the speed limit. I take this very seriously as I certainly believe he should pay the consequences for his actions and never forget this dark moment. That said, a military career is ALL he has ever dreamed of... I am heartbroken as this is very likely to end what he has worked so hard for. Has anyone had any experience with this or know of any? Is there ever a punishment that does not result in dismissal? I apologize for rambling but feel as if I am in shock. Please no lectures. I feel the burden of this very stupid decision he made quite heavily. I do not want to try to get him out of trouble. I just think if there is any way possible to preserve a career I should help him look into it. Thank you!
