    So who watched the story on 60 Minutes about the Navy's readiness tonight?

    No new news to me but I'm glad they covered it because I'm sure it's news to a great many people. America HAS to rebuild it's industrial might if it ever hopes to win a Great Power contest. There's a reason so many countries are coming under the influence of China. The world is not blind to this.

    I can't believe Virginia and Arizona are knocked out in Round 1. Of course I had them both in the Sweet Sixteen.

    Why did the military doctor do .... if it's not allowed for the Service Academies???

    I don't disagree but young folks don't have enough life experience to know what the 'right' answer is.

    Graduated but not commissioned.

    I guess I'm confused. If I understand it correctly your son: 1. Received a scholarship 2. Failed physics at some point and "lost" his scholarship. 3. Was allowed to continue in NROTC and subsequently passed physics. 4. Graduated while still continuing with NROTC. Did he ever lose his contract?

    Rotc last board

    No direct knowledge if you can or can't but my opinion is they wouldn't review your application again after awarding any scholarship. You can try asking an ROO who should be in the know.

    DS Getting ROTC Leadership Award from Battalion - can I infer his OML standing?

    There is more that goes into OML than leadership but I don't expect they would give such an award to people who were doing badly in other areas. I'm sure your son is correct about not knowing where he stands on OML.

    AFROTC and NROTC EC's and academics

    If you look at the SAT scores for all ROTC program scholarships their average is actually higher than the academies. Makes sense as it's a national competition and political geography makes no difference.

    Army ROTC Questions

    DoDMERB will contact you to start the process. Keep an eye on your spam folder just in case. They'll assign you a doctor and I believe they give you a date when it should be completed. Schedule an appointment as soon as you can just in case there are snags along the way. Your scholarship will...
