Has anyone heard anything about some minor NROTC "training" budget cuts? Spoke with DS last night and he said "Big Navy", as he calls it, will no longer allow battalion owned vans to be used for transport to Drill Competitions. His unit had to turn to the alumni association to get funds to attend the Tulane competition in Feb. Their attendance at the Memphis competition is still up in the air. He also said there is a chance that Mt. Warfare Training for Marine Options may be cut as well. Other training would be substituted, eg. training assignment to an amphib unit. This one would actually make some sense with the Afghan war winding down and attendees still being 2 years from commissioning and probably 3 years from deployment. He came across this info as he was speaking with his MOI regarding changing his assignment from Mt. Warfare to an Amphib unit so he could keep his summer job at the college from mid-May to early July. The MOI mentioned Mt. Warfare might be cut out anyway for budget reasons. Of course it might just have been the MOI trying to make him feel better or something, but I think these guys are generally straight up about stuff. The whole things works fine for me as I think he gets a better sense of what he'll be doing and if something does crop up at high altitude I assume they'll attend Mt. Warfare prior to deployment. Just wondering if anyone else has heard anything?
