Well, I suppose if they really fail, they may not be alive! Because of budget cuts, they may be kicked out of aviation and the Navy. There were a number of '09 and '10 grads that washed out of flight school and instead of being rerouted to SWO (surface ships) they were let go. REALLY short-sighted as the Navy already has many $$$$$ in them. The current administration just doesn't seem to get that you can't just dial up a carrier crew on two weeks notice--it takes years of training and practice to keep them at the top of their game. Figure 10,000 souls on a carrier (two crews), ten carriers, not to mention cruisers, destroyers, riverine, bases, medical, etc. You can't put personnel in mothballs!
Bekah passed with flying colors!
GO NAVY! BEAT ARMY!
