anyone out there with knowledge/experience I would appreciate your input. DS just lost his type 2 ROTC scholarship today for failure on PFA. He is devastated beyond words. He went faithfully to PT and thought that would be enough and he would be okay. so from what he's told me his scholarship is for sure gone. However, he says that HQ now reviews his files and situation and can not only dis-enroll him from ROTC entirely, but can also ban him from future officer programs/consideration. I understand the loss of the scholarship as hard as it is. The regs clearly state they must pass it by 12/31 of freshman fall term. He knew that and didn't adequatley prepare. The other stuff though, disenrollment from the program and possibly never being able to be an officer seem incredibly harsh. This is an 18 yr old freshman who made a mistake in his preparation. He didn't get a DUI, fail his classes, have conduct unbecoming a future officer, etc. anyone been through this or know what his options are? I spoke with his commander who was a bit vague. Said HQ could come back and say he is eliglbe for future officer programs but commanders was unsure if that included possibly being able to do ROTC in the future or if it just met he could go to another branch of service and try to be an officer. HQ answer on his fate takes 4-6 weeks. I just can't believe the AF would feel an 18 yr old kid making an innocent error in judgment on his fitness prep would ban him for life from officership in the AF. That's beyond harsh. Yes, I know it's the military...I was in the Army for 9 years. bottom line..anyone have any experience with this and if he has a chance of ever being in AF ROTC again or ever being and AF officer. He's watching his life's dream disintegrate and is devastated.
