    How many times did it take for your DH to make LDO? If the board didn't reccommend them the first time, did they do better the next year? You can apply til 15 years in right?

    Please excuse any typos. typing with baby in arms/

    way way old schoolers like my uncle who is a retired Army O and in his 70's will say things like

    "nah, never happens, if they didn't get it on the first try, there's something wrong and they shouldn't be there in the first place, second or subsequent rounds"

    (Based on an actual conversation in the past...)

    But, the reality is these days that any number of things can cause someone to not be recommended on the first shot... many of which are out of the individual's control.

    Many people I personally knew while dating my ex made it through on second, or third tries and have done quite well. Persistence pays off. Don't give up.

    I've never heard that you can't apply past 15 yrs, I do know tho that if you want to retire as an officer, you will have to give the military 10 yrs (assuming you then total 20) of officer status in order to retire at that rank. B didn't make it last year, but he's going to just continue to put packages in. Hope this year goes well for both of us.
