I may be getting way ahead of myself as my DS is only a candidate for the class of 2017, but mom asked a question and I only had guesses....After graduation and DS is sent off to his branch of service, when will we see him again? I realize there must be many variables involved, but as for overseas deployment what is the general length of time away? If he is assigned to a post in the U.S. how much time will pass before he can get away to come home? Could he be sent directly from West Point into combat? Mom is so proud that he is willing to serve his country but also is worried for him and wants to know the facts. Thanks.
