My DS just received his appointment, he is active duty, but only 19 and been enlisted for a year & 9 months. This process has been a whirlwind for him, had no intention of applying but was approached by his command to apply, which he decided to do and barely got the application in by the deadline. He didn't realize it was an option for active duty. He seems to be a bit overwhelmed right now, we even thought he might be considering declining but thank goodness he has accepted. So, I am looking for any advice, any active duty experience?
