DS has been invited to join AAS next semester. He is not sure because he feels the time commitment might be overwhelming. His dad, who was enlisted active duty Navy and never went to college, feels like this would be a good thing to have in your back pocket once you are commissioned. I'm neutral about it - DS is going to a challenging school with a heavy class load next semester, and the student group associated with the detachment already has a fair amount of community service projects going on. I'm sure he could find the time (at the expense of some of his leisure time), but it would mean yet another commitment to juggle. I found this thread, but it's 5 years old: https://www.serviceacademyforums.com/index.php?threads/afrotc-arnold-air-society-entrance.28183/ Anyone have any more current information or advice?
