My DS is applying to USNA, USCG, USAFA and NROTC for the class of 2018. One thing to consider is how sequestration will affect the various services. He plans to stay in beyond the 5 yr requirement. Does anyone have any thoughts on this? I know USCG is the smallest of the services, but not sure how they are affected. I saw online that they are looking at getting some brand new planes from the Air Force that the Air Force will not be able to operate due to sequestration.
