Thanks everyone for all your helpful info. It helped me add questions to my list we had not thought of before.
So last night SD, BM, DH, and I all talked and it went well. BM and SD agreed to wait to sign up for the guard till we review more options. We are meeting with the recruiter and all have our lists of questions. SD gave me 3 local colleges she is interested in which I am scheduling visits for. We will ask questions as if she is in the guard and as if she is just a student.
I am thrilled! The guard maybe the best option but at least now I know we are going to investigate may avenues and get more information before she makes that choice. It is SDs life and she will make the final choice but now we can help guide her in getting information to make the best choice for her.
Thanks agian! All the responses were helpful!!! Now we are on to our research......
