My son just had his NROTC interview this morning at the Great Lakes Naval Base. I have been reading threads here for the past couple of weeks (just found this site) and people have been asking about their NROTC status after the first board in August. But the Chief told me today that NROTC did not have a board in August due to a lack of funds. The first board will convene Sept. 23rd in Pensacola so they interviewed at least 17 kids today and plan on shipping their packets to Florida on Tuesday. They will then choose more kids this month as they have to choose for both August and September....if that makes sense. Thought someone else might like to know.
