    AFROTC Interest and GPA concern

I've heard numbers as low as only 500 HSSP scholarships for next year. If this is true and if we assume each Commander at each of the 145 detachments has...

It is said that this is based upon varying levels of experience, like Civil Air Patrol or JROTC. I wasn't involved with but I am an Eagle Scout. So this brought up two questions, 1) is there a...
