Took a day off of work and son took a day from school. He had his NROTC interview with a Chief at a recruiting center. After the hour and 20 minute drive, we pulled in to the recruiters office. The appointment was at 10 am. Called the Chief who was to do the interview and my sons face fell to the asphalt. The Chief said, "who set this appointment up?" son: "Chief you did." chief: "when?" son: "last friday". chief: "oh thats why I forgot. Ill call you later to reschedule." I've spent many years active in the Navy and have yet to see a chief act the way he did. He did not even offer an explanation or an apology, nor did he even own this major error. Like I said, I am veteran of many years in the Navy and I am embarrassed to see a supperior enlisted guy act in this manner. I called his BGO for the USNA and am waiting his return call. I believe he can actually do the interview as well. After all, he performed his interview for the Naval Academy. What is most upsetting is that my son is very biased toward the US Army. I am a Navy man at heart. He went to SLS and is awaiting their acceptance decision in the winter. He has also already been accpeted to the Citadel and to their scholarship competition. This has only solidified his decision to go only Army. Sorry to use this thread as a sounding board just needed to vent a bit. Out a days work and son is out a college visit day.
