Yesterday DS received a completely unexpected letter from the AROTC battalion in the in state school at which he was offered a 3 year AD scholarship back in April! Yesterday's letter says, "You have been selected to receive a 1-year In-State Tuition Only Scholarship effective Autumn Semester 2012." Holy cats!!! Didn't even know that was possible - what a crazy crazy surprise!! Does this mean that what once was a 3 year AROTC scholarship has now turned into a 4 year one?! Kind of a hybrid deal, the first year from the school battalion, and sophomore through senior year the national award?! DS's journey has been chockful of surprises - some decidedly unpleasant and some quite awesome!! I'd definitely say this was an awesome surprise!!
