Got a call last night that my SR is being medically discharged because of an issue with his knee.  He is devastated. He is half way through BC and was supposed to graduate on 8/8/14 but instead in sitting in "Separation" with about 60 other SR's waiting to be sent home.  The doctor said a tendon in his knee is permanently damaged.  I don't understand because he's passed his placement physical exam to enter BC, and has also passed his physical tests in BC.  Can someone direct me to either a group here in N4M or a website that can answer some of my questions about if they can appeal a decision, or if they can re-enlist after being medically discharged.

Wondering the chances of reenlisting with an E8? The chances of getting back in?

My oldest son is an officer so I know the rules are different than enlisted.  His 4 year commission is up in May.  He has been in limbo for over a year.  I know I am only getting his side of the story, but he says they will not station him on a ship due to "mental health issues" and he wants to resign his commission.  So if they don't really want him and he wants out, why is it taking so long?

i'm a member on the fb site that supports families dealing w/this topic. i retained a civilian mil. atty., as i couldn't trust the mil system alone to give my son a fair shot. glad to see this group also and i hope to go to the prayer portion on this site too.

i am in Charleston now and due to depression they have started the administrative separation that can be finalized as early as 3 weeks,because the sooner i get him to NC,he will start feeling better.

My son will be in the Navy for 2 years,this August 25,2013.He was in the Naval Nuclear Program.He made it through "A" and Power School and started Prototype this past March.He has been diagnosed with pilonidal cysts and will have to have surgery soon.He was put on med hold on July 24th.He was diagnosed with depression with more of a dopamine deficiency.As much as they want him to stay in,because academically,he was outstanding,and hasn't had any conduct issues at all,they also told him,that they don't want any Sailor to feel like they are trapped in the Navy.The physician put him on an antidepressant yesterday.He said he was in DTP processing right now.They are giving him 30 days to vacate his apartment and relocate to NETC(NWS),so they can watch him on base.He is looking at an Administrative Discharge within 3 months,at the earliest.I am hoping sooner.
