    Enlist???? Befote NROTC

    You are all so right. My son told the recruiter today he is not going to enlist until all college avenues are exhausted and asked if they would still help him and they dropped him like a hot potato. His feelings were hurt a little. He thought they really wanted to help him. They are the...
