@Pima I read an earlier post of yours referring to your DS's friend from AFROTC that worked a desk for 5 years then joined the Guard as a pilot. Is there any way you could put me in contact with your DS or his friend?
@Pima, I'm 21, just got a bachelors degree (electrical eng.), but didn't do ROTC. I'm considering both OTS and the AFA. My grades are good, I have some community service but my afpft score is below 80 when I tested myself. I'm used to the hot climate of the south. Are minimum scores good enough while at OTS, or do I need to excel? I'm trying my hardest to get 85.
I'm thinking about CFA and nomination a bit later.
I am comparing the pros/cons of AFROTC vs AFA. I'm not going to lie, I'm not quite in High School yet but have a dream of becoming a pilot. I'm not sure if it's too early to do something, but if there is anything I could do to "become a pilot", please let me know. Which do you think is better overall, ROTC or AFROTC? I know it's a little early to know for sure yet but I want to get a good idea of what I want to do.
Hi, I was wondering if color vision is a dq for afrotc. I havent been able to find a solid answer and was wondering if you could give me one. I know that color vision is needed to be a pilot and to fly in general, but what about other jobs?
I have confidence that I can get a waiver for my slight allergy (never had any reactions, no medication used or carried, I can eat things cooked in peanut oil, and I don't have a special diet I just avoid eating peanuts/butter) but it does worry me a lot.
Hello sir. I was wondering if you could eat all explain the process for getting a peanut allergy waiver. I am currently going through the Army ROTC scholarship process and this is my only bump in the road. I believe I have a good chance for a scholarship but this worries me.
My boy is graduating max 5 field training on Monday. He wrote us a letter that he has been selected as a guidon for the graduation parade. We were wondering what that title is and what entails for the parade. Seeing how your knowledge and prompt responses to others seems your the best approach for an answer. Will be thankful for a reply.
DS is trying to decide between an appointment to USAFA and AFROTC scholarship. I understand the academy process, not the ROTC. In the long run, which do you feel is better. Yes, I know this is a loaded question, but I need a place to start. Thanks Pima
Do you think being invited to CVW helps in gaining appointment to USNA? My DS went in September and truly enjoyed the experience. When they send you the information it says that it does not mean that you will get an appointment, however, they would not ask if they (USNA) were not very interested in the candidate. We visited USAFA in October but he fell in love with USNA.
