Just a topic for discussion. In another thread a parent had a son disciplined for alcohol. This has not happened to us, but it got me wondering. Some cadets & mids come from affluent families and could easily repay the $200,000 + or - that the govt. has the right to assess if students are dismissed for grades or for conduct offenses. Many families are not able to withstand such a financial hardship. We all love our kids. What would you guys do if yours screwed up with drugs, alcohol, or a major conduct offense? Would you pay back the money for them (assuming a fee is levied)? Would you bail him/her out financially for a dismissal due to grades? This is theoretical, and not even an issue until 2nd class year, but I wondered... For the purpose of this discussion, please discount the possibility of entering the service as enlisted to repay the commitment.
