    I am a disabled vet (50% for now) and I am trying to get back in if possible. I'm a freshman in College, and will start ROTC on Tuesday when school begins again. I know it's gonna take one hell of a waiver to get back it, but we've been working on it for awhile and will see how the next two years go before I really have to make a decision. I know about giving up my benefits and all that, I just want to know if anyone here got their commission in ROTC... and if so, if you have any pointers.
    FWIW, I've already been to "Camp Challenge"... I went about a year before I enlisted. Is the rest of it about the same as that?

    Justin, can you keep me updated on your waiver process? What school are you going through ROTC at? Who is your recruiter/paper pusher? Do you mind shooting me a PM about your disability rating? The reason I ask is that I have been considering ROTC/G2G for some time, then got injured, so I'm wondering if it's still a possibility.

    I'm taking some of the freshman/sophmore level classes now. I don't want a commission, but they're supposed to be easy "A" grades.
