On the website application, it asks if your parent has served in the armed forces. On my MOC's app. it say military service. My Mom was in the USPHS and a Lt. Cmdr.with full base privileges and Navy uniforms. I did not know if that counted and asked my BGO. He did not know either and had me call the admissions office. The lady that helped me said it would count but only if she had served for 8 years(she served 5). Has anyone heard that there is a restriction on years of service to include it in the application? If there is, why do they not put a minimum required on the application?
