My DS has an LOA from USNA, but no nomination. His nomination is for the AF Academy. He prefers USAF Academy, but basically just wants to serve his country in uniform. We all know how competitive appointments for AF are for the class of 2016. Our MOC rep has said that all nominations have been given out...but that invariably some nominees either don't pass CFA and/or DODMERB. If that occurs for a USNA nominee, we have been told our DS will have that nomination. So, when would would the MOC know about disqualifications? That being said DS is anxiously awaiting a BFE from AF, like everyone else, we're anxious. The "squid" in the hand is more reassuring than the "falcon" in the bush.
