Hornet, I love you, but there has to be a back story regarding the Rhodes Scholar being RIF'd since the AF did not cut like they did in 92-93. (95% of non-full commissioned). I am betting there was a desk drawer 15 or DUI. For example 2 2nd LTs AFA grads on casual status at SJAFB before going to UPT got a DUI...they lost their UPT slot, but if they were in the RIF yr they would have also been on the chopping block. SA cadets need to understand that THEY no longer have a FULL COMMISSIONING. Yrs ago they came in with a full and that meant ROTC/OTS/OCS would be cut before them. Now they are just as vulnerable for RIFS as the ROTC/OTS/OCS, there is no safety net.
