Where does all the confusion come from on this forum? So many times straight-forward posts are misinterpreted. How is that possible?
Your post is puzzling considering your years as a teacher.
Wabash redefining "IS" and you insisting "IS NOT" got old a long while back...
You two will still be arguing the same points after the next election is over..
JQP hit the nail on the head. A offer of a recommendation was made. There was never an offer of a full scholarship since he never applied.

A lot of what happens here is that some forum members aren't careful readers or cannot correctly interpret what they read. I will show you what I mean. OK?
I like you sbayhills, so don't get your hackles up that I am trying to discredit you. I am pointing out that you are wrong regarding this particular issue. It doesn't mean that I don't like you or that I am trying to make you look stupid. I'm not.
sbayhills: Brooke, we've already established his West Point story is false.No, sbayhills, I did not say that. I have been saying the exact opposite. Read through all the posts on the thread if you want to verify what I say is true.
You've said it enough that you believe it so. Rational people understand why an 18 year old would believe he was offered a scholarship. My brother states that his son has a full scholarship to Annapolis. That's how it was sold to them. If my brother was a Republican running for President, you'd be calling him a liar.
Carson's West Point story was not false. It was absolutely true. Where things go wrong on this forum is that forum members don't read through all the posts and oftentimes put their own incorrect interpretation to what has been said.
For example, there are a couple of references on this forum that state General Westmoreland offered a scholarship to Carson. THAT IS NOT TRUE, NOR DID CARSON SAY THAT. Carson said he attended a dinner with Westmoreland and other Congressional Medal of Honor winners. He said, he was later offered a scholarship to West Point.
