DS is a 2014 B split. He survived plebe year with a 3.0 GPA and was feeling pretty good when he went to sea. His experience at sea has been totally positive. So I was surprised to get an email from him saying he was thinking of not returning to KP. His stated reason is that he can't see himself leading a seafaring life. So I thought I'd get some input from y'all. Anything you think might be helpful is welcome. And I have a specific question. His state of mind seems to be that while all the travel is adventurous and exciting, it's not a home. He wants a home. Are there service options available to KP grads that allow them to put down roots? Maybe the Coast Guard or the NOAA? Does anyone know anything at all about the NOAA? Thanks for any insight. And please spare me the helicopter warnings. This is my son. I'm his father. He asked for my advice. I wouldn't even consider turning a deaf ear, and I don't care if he's 19 or 50.
