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.

My Son did his five years in the Navy and he had plans on reinlisting but his first 7 month cruise his wife cheated on him, they had been together 7 years two married, he called me, and he would be in tears, it hurt our whole Family and I had to ask God to take the anger away from me for her so I could help my Son, now he is home and leaving tomorrow for the Base in Mayport Naval Station for a week of detachment classes but now he is looking forward to his new future and College, I am glad you Moms are here to help each other

Comment by Angie on June 26, 2013 at 11:22am

Liz, you want to check out the Ship 5 group that one is for those who are being separated in bootcamp

Comment by Liz'smom on June 26, 2013 at 10:52am

Hi, I am new to this group- my daughter is being medically discharged from bootcamp.. I am waiting to hear when she goes to Legal.. She passed all of Bootcamp but her final pfa- she then went to fit, and did something to her leg- got sent to rcu- first they said it was stress fractures- then shin splints- then unfit and lazy- she is being discharged for ptsd- which she displayed while being in the RCU... this whole situation, really is upsetting... she intends to try to re enlist at a later time...

Quick question, my son was discharge after being in for 3.5 yrs would have bbe 4 in Oct but hemissed weight by 10 lbs after 3rd try. I saw all his evaluations and work information. He received excellent in all his evaluations. He received a general discharge but I do not know that code that was placed on discharge paperwork. He is now taking college classes but if he ever decides to get in shape and stay at or below weight status is there any possibility that he could reinlist? I doubt it but wanted to ask.
