    Marion Military Parent's Weekend: A hint

    Trust me when I say: stay in Tuscaloosa. In 2 years, we were always disappointed with Selma. No offense to anyone living there, but it is very depressed and hotels are sub par and there is no place to eat. Tuscaloosa is worth the drive.

    Waiver Timeframe?

    Opinion needed: My son is scheduled for elective middle ear surgery and I thought we would definitely be on the path for a waiver. According to this list it is a disqualifying issue, does that mean a waiver wouldn't be attainable? Also, because this is in his medical records is he now screwed...
