Good morning ladies,
My son started his Navy process back in June of 2014, he had to clear through MEPS with waivers for past surgeries, he was so excited to get his career started. He swore in at MEPS beginning of October 2014 with a ship date of June 2015, he graduates high school in May of 2015. He came home the other day and said he no longer wants to be in Navy, his heart is not in it. He met his girlfriend a few weeks before swearing in and has said his relationship with her has no bearing on his change of heart, I believe it does some. His grandfathers have had health issues recently and he said he does not believe if something happened to them that he would be allowed to come home of which i told him the Navy will get him home in case of a family emergency. I think he is just scared and has that puppy love of high school and doesnt want to leave because of his girlfriend. I am having a real hard time with this because it is such an amazing opportunity for him and a lifetime of benefits. I do not want him to regret this decision later on. Any help/ideas would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks for the update.
Thanks for update. Happy for you and for him.
