So, I'm joining the ROTC program at my college! I'm really looking forward to it, but I have some questions, if anyone has answers, I'd be very grateful for the help!
My situation: I discovered the program in my Junior year of college. I've had a couple rough semesters and am getting the grades fixed ASAP. I am about halfway through my degree at the moment.
