Or is that delurk? I have been here for a couple of weeks gleaning a wealth of information from all of you. So first of all thank you. As a newbie to all this military stuff, your expertise has been very appreciated. My screen name (chosen by my husband) says it all I think. DS is a senior in HS applying to the academies as well as NROTC. Ultimately wants to serve but he is partial to the Navy as we have visited and he loves the water. Happy to be here and I'm off to post what we learned today at his NROTC interview with the group.
