Well we drove up to NAS Jax today for his remedial eye test (FALANT) and unfortunately, he failed. Real close on his first test but no cigar, the sea service Academy's are out as is a NROTC scholarship. The Navy Corpsman that gave the test couldn't have been more professional and helpful. From the directions, to administering the test, he was fantastic, a credit to the Navy. He also sensed how crushing this was to my son and he was visibly upset, not crying but it was abundantly clear that his life had just changed course. My son quickly pulled himself together after the news and thanked the Corpsman for his time wished him well on his PO 3 test (the Corpsman told my son of his test the next day while waiting for the room) and then shook his hand. On the way through the parking lot back to the car, three E-2 Hawkeyes passed over real low (that's what he wanted to fly ironically...) and he just looked at me and said "Dad, can you believe that? Of all planes..." I really felt bad for him but we knew this was an up hill thing from the git go. He's starting to swing back and we're talking about the alternative plans we had in place.
