As a former commander of a unit in the Army, I see that my son isn't given the counsel he needs. Temporary hold is no joke. This is their chosen career and they should be able to seek advice from JAG officer. I fear that he will be out processed soon, separated from his goal. It isn't all happy for these kids. Some need direction. Some need a skill. Many, so many are there to serve, serve their nation with pride in their hearts.
Not all get to stay Navy.
Some will be turned away even when they have successfully completed the rigors of the recruit training.
