    ARMY ROTC Third Board Winners

    Yes 14 hours- we are in Illinois... but he has worked so hard for this and it has been his dream for as long as I can remember. I have to remember that we raise an amazing young man and that he will stand by his morals, values, and ethics... hope that is more than wishful thinking/dreaming.

We were not shocked that he won a 4 year scholarship, but we were hesitant as we opened the application site yesterday. He is a...

    AROTC 3rd Board...Place to Wait

    The waiting is awful... DS has been accepted into his top school picks and we are awaiting ROTC information. As I stated the last time I posted- he will be attending NCSU either way. However, from Illinois, this scholarship would be a God send and he has talked about ROTC and the U.S. Army since...

    DS was accepted to NCSU, since we are from the Mid-West, it is exciting for us all. Waiting for word on the scholarship is making us all a little crazy. He will attend NCSU, regardless but the scholarship would be great. I know from lurking that some many others are in the same waiting boat...
