I am a mother of 5 adult children; 2 of which choose to service their country through the military - 1 daughter went USAF and 1 son went USNavy/NROTC. My daughter has completed her 6 year enlisted commitment as well as her inactive reserve time. She is a new mom and a used her GI bill to become a school teacher.
My youngest son enlisted his Senior year of high school, but the Navy had other plans for him and sent him to college first thru the NROTC program. It's been a great experience for him. He started as a Nuke Eng major, but has changed to Mathematics. He was selected SWO but a few weeks before graduation and commissioning he was re-assigned to aviation. He started his pilot training 10 days after graduating in Pensacola. He is now in Corpus Christi in his second stage of training.
