I am angry, frustrated, and more angry. My son signed up for cyber security training and left for bootcamp at the end of June. After 4 weeks, we got a call from him today telling us that he did not pass the background clearance and cannot get his CB training. WTF! Shouldn't the Navy have done their background clearance before he signed a contract and was sent to bootcamp? Did they just lie to him to get him to enlist?
And now he is depressed and has anxiety attacks because he doesn't know what he should do. He joined the navy because they promised him the training he is passionate about and now he is lost. He had a college acceptance to UTSA and was going to start this fall. All his hopes and dreams seem shattered. We told him not to settle for any other training. If the US government is not holding up their end of the contract, then he should come home.
I don't get it! I am frustrated. My baby is hurting and I cannot be there to help him. I don't even know why they have not cleared him. Maybe because his parents are Middle Eastern? "Land of Opportunity" my xxx. Sorry, I am just sooooo disappointed, bitter, and angry.
