Planning on signing up our 13 yr old son. Just looking for thoughts & opinions. Thanks!
SS was in it here, along with Jr ROTC. His group actually built/repaired a small plane, and then got to fly In it.
Not to mention, these organizations are very service oriented, and they look great on the college applications, especially if the child participates for more than 2 years.
Manneek1977:Thanks ladies. Great info! DH & son attend the first meeting last night. And DS actually like it. We must attend 3 meetings first before joining.
Perhaps that is a squadron rule, but not a national rule. He can sign up as soon as he wants to. It is actually better to sign up sooner than later if he really wants to do this. That way his blues uniform comes in the mail along with his binder and books. It is from the books that he will be able to study and achieve his rank. I have been in as a teen and I am still a senior member today! Let me know if you have any questions.
