For your information: For many of the newcomers to the Forums. I am prohibited access to the Forums during the workday while working at USAFA. Therefore, I can only access late at night; weekends; holidays; and while on leave. Private Messaging is far too difficult for me to handle, given the above. Therefore, if anyone has a direct question, they can send me an email. "If" they are already an applicant, send me your full name and last 4 SSN to Larry.Mullen@dodmerb.tma.osd.mil. I have a laptop, BlackBerry, and I-phone. Unless in a meeting or a similar tasking, I'm usually very responsive...and far more responsive than my having to use the Forums.
