    Thanks everyone, for the advice about what to pack for CVW. My son flew to DC last night, from our posting in China, in preparation for his CVW this weekend, got off the plane and got an email announcing the weekend's events were cancelled. I understand, of course, but it's such a disappointment to him. Just needed to get it out there...

    From China?
    That hurts, a lot.
    Florence is a mean-spirited (expletive deleted).

    I wonder if he could still bunker down at the USNA? Or a sponsor parent? Did he travel alone? I would take him in if I could (not close geographically)!

    If you DS came in from China I would definitely have your DS call admissions. Let them know his situation. They might be able to arrange some things for him. At a minimum he can take the generic walking tour and see if admissions is holding a brief that day. With the travel he did, they might be able to at least meet with him, see if he could drag with a Mid, etc. Never know, I would say its worth a try, whats the worse they say... sorry, no.

    Contact Admissions. They should get some arrangements. Bancroft is a big and solid secure building. Thank God that DD was transferred from Paris Island to Pendelton. Hunker Down. I remember Camille on the Gulf Coast.

    These are certainly mitigating circumstances.
    My Mid would be glad to drag your son around, if Admissions gives him the go-ahead.
    He just told me that anyone in his Company would be glad to drag him for a couple of days, so his time isn't wasted here.

    Ouch - sorry to hear that.

    I guess we dodged the bullet. My son's CVW was originally scheduled for this weekend. It was moved to the following weekend due to a conflict with a NROTC selection board event this Saturday.

    I am guessing they will accommodate him. I think USNA was concerned about an extra couple of hundred kids to feed, lodge and then figure out how to get home. Not to mention families that came too. Airlines are allowing refunds and changes from what I saw so hopefully for kids coming in from stateside can make the changes as needed. I know it’s disappointing.

    Thanks for the encouragement, everyone. He did travel there with my husband, who is Navy, so he's trying to figure something out. So far, nothing. He's at least getting the chance to do his NROTC skype interview Stateside, while he's there, to avoid China internet disruptions.

    He traveled with my husband, but he has to work (Navy) while he's there. He's trying to figure something out with the USNA.

    That's so nice! My husband is trying to make contact with someone there to see if they can figure something out. We'll see.

    He's staying with friends of ours, so he's safe. Hoping to figure out some way to connect with USNA.

    @DeploymentDiatribes. I just PM'd you, see my message regarding CVW and possibly finding you a host if not at USNA.
