I'm fine with DS attending NROTC, but DH having trouble accepting "no" from both AFA and AFROTC (found this one out today). DS wants to fly heavy transport, but DH thinks that won't happen in the Navy. How much paperwork, prodding, begging, googling, letter-writing, phone calls, etc. is enough? Applying at multiple academies has been grueling, to say the least, and the inability to plan is nerve-wracking. I feel like a trained seal at the circus jumping through all these hoops. Am I wimping out at a critical point? Sometimes I think DS should have applied at local Liberal Arts college and been an English teacher.
