Livin' On the Right Side of the River From Pags!
During that time they were also dumping Army ROTC grads into National Guard units. There were infantry companies with two or three 2LTs per platoon and some never made it to their basic course. It wasn’t a good time for them.I get that they would do that to save money, but talk about a shitty deal for those guys, one of my last years in recruiting they did something similar to the guys graduating Army ROTC at several of the schools I covered as they were contacting us to see if they could apply for USN OCS, they realized they were over their numbers, several were sent drilling reserves, some were able to commission AD, and others were just outright told they had no commitment at all. The worst part is they were told mere weeks prior to graduation after all the college career fairs had come and gone.
