My son is a four year ROTC scholarship recipient. He is 4o days before graduation and commissioning. He has already contracted and has been assigned his first choice as an infantry officer in the Army. He has excelled all four years in all of his training requirements including LDAC and will graduate in the top 5 of his ROTC senior class. He is in the Scabbard and Blade military honor fraternity and a leader in his university's Ranger Club. I tear up as I write this because all he has ever wanted to do for a career is lead soldiers and be an infantry officer serving his country and after five years of very hard work he is 6 weeks away. This past weekend after a short illness, he was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. He is the picture of health, never had a problem before and it does not run in our immediate family. We all realize that this will immediately disqualify him from service and that alone is a huge personal disappointment and death of a dream. My question is... will the army require him to pay back his scholarship money since he will not be able to serve? This was not in any way brought on by him and surprised everyone. It is already a huge blow but would be an almost unbearable insult to injury if they made him pay them back. Anyone know the rules on this?
