My DS had his DODMerb eye exam yesterday and failed both color blind exams (not even close to passing). However, he did pass the vivid red/green section. We realize that he will not be able to fly. He wants to attend the USAFA (1st choice), USNA (2nd choice) or USMA (3rd choice) and study political science. He would have loved to learn to fly; however this was not his dream, nor was it his career choice to be a pilot. How does this affect his continuing down the path toward each of the service academies?
