Thanks for this good info, it is a scary thing I must say.
Ok North Central, I live on the West side of Phoenix. It is getting Pretty Bad. But everywhere around this area is Bad. wanted to move awhile ago so glad I remained with everything happening my way. Thanks for sharing. Hoping Tabitha can get somewhere with this info.
Tabitha I posted the Ombudsman number on your my page something I googled. it has her email.
I hope this can help you and your Family, And I am so sorry this is happening. I just don't understand the meaning of this. My Heart hurts for you. Please let me know if any of these numbers help or leads you to getting help. I will be Praying it does and Praying for you and your family.
Tabitha, I know I am coming late to this post. Let me say this first, I am so sorry that you son is going through this. There should be Ombudsman for your son command, their "job" is to be a conduit between wife, mothers, fathers, child and command. If you can find out who is the ombudsman for your son command and see if they can help you voice you concerns. Also, maybe have you son go talk to the Chaplain in his command, that is what they are there for to help the sailors in command. Since, I dont know where he is stationed, but you might do a little bit of research about his command and the base he is at. I hate to say this, you might have to make some noise to get something done. It saddens me that this still happens within the Navy.
Your son is in our prayers and hope that everything works out for him
Going through the same thing- accept our son did attempt suicide a month ago- we were notified and flew to base he was admitted to the psych ward for 2 days it was HORRIBLE conditions! He was released on 2 anti depressant medications and therapy 4 days a week. Just this past few weeks he was called into legal and had is NRJ on Tuesday and Captains Mast yesterday- he is not on restriction to the ship- for 45 days - and being given a General Honorable discharge after 5 years. He had an impeccable record not one mark on him - they took the low road and are discharging him instead of getting him the treatment he needed. The incident was the day after Veterans day- his first Psychiatrists appointment scheduled for get this.......... JANUARY 8th! 2 months after a suicide attempt - horrendous. My son had just enlisted for 6 more years was set to go back to Japan for 3 years on May and they are now discharging him. I am OK with that part because the Navy has done absolutely NOTHING for this situation= they preach Suicide is taken seriously- well I know first hand it is NOT. He will be just fine in the Civilian world has a strong work ethic and at this point I just want out son HOME where WE can actually follow up on his treatment and get him well and sane again. They failed our son.
