    Our family has been lurking for quite some time and truly appreciate all of the incredible advice and information we have read on this forum...since we are truly newbies when it comes to the SAs, we never felt like we had much to post as most of our questions seemed to be asked and answered already...our DS is excited to finally be in the process of applying to the SAs and scheduled his DoDMERB exams today...which leads to the sharing of this post...
    When DS called to schedule his medical exam in our kitchen this morning, my wife and I ease dropped a bit as he was asked the usually questions and gave the standard answers, but then a baffled and confused look came over his face as we overheard the scheduler ask, "Social?" after a long befuddled pause DS asked, "Snapchat or Instagram?" Thankfully, over our muffled laughter and my spilt coffee, we could hear the kind scheduler state, "No Honey, your social security number." and then hear his relief, "Ohhhh..ok...." And so it begins...

    Hilarious! Curious though, have you completed an application yet? I'm applying for CGA c/o 2022 and I'm not sure when to expect a DODMERB email

    He received the DoDMERB email right after teachers submitted LOR and guidance counselor submitted academic record.

    That really is a good one, to which my social media crazed DD can certainly relate!
