Default Is Caleb Campbell Done Before Getting Started?

Anybody seen this?

Quote:
Safety Caleb Campbell of Perryton, Texas, became the first player in 11 years to be drafted from West Point when the Detroit Lions claimed him in the seventh round in April.

According to a memorandum from the Under Secretary of Defense last August, academy graduates can request early release from their active duty service obligations (ADSO) only after having served a minimum of 24 months of those obligations.

The Army's interpretation is that Campbell could serve those 24 months as a Detroit-area recruiter if he makes the Lions and remains on their roster those two seasons.

The interpretation by the Air Force and Navy is that their graduates must fulfill that two-year military commitment first before pursuing an early release. The Department of Defense informed the Army in late April, after the draft, that it must review its policy to make sure it's in compliance.

Default Re: Is Caleb Campbell Done Before Getting Started?

There's some positive publicity and good will to be garnered here, but the Army will find a way to lose it. They are perfectly within their rights to deny him the opportunity, but it can be argued that it would be beneficial to release him, or defer his service. They could re-work his service contract if they want, as well. I've seen it happen for other people.
