Gojira, I am so sorry to learn of the outcome. I was hoping for a more favorable outcome for your son. It certainly seems that the Navy/ROTC failed your son in this by waiting until the very end. $150,000 is a huge amont of debt to graduate from college with, especially when it comes as a surprise. I am sorry.Several months ago, I posted some information about my son. His unit was pursuing disenrollment for him.
In November he was given his orders for reporting after graduation in December, he was measured for his commissioning uniforms and tape measured.
Unfortunately, he missed the mark by a few pounds and was out of compliance.
He was disenrolled for the weight. I honestly think they were looking for a reason previous to the weight issue.
We found out that his appeal was denied. He now owes the Navy $150,000.
He was not given an option to enlist - according to his unit, the Secretary of the Navy was asking for full recoupment of anyone who was facing disenrollment.
Thanks to everybody for your support, kind words and advice. It's pretty terrible for him - the dream is over.
I do wish everybody here the best of luck as they pursue their dreams of serving in the military.
