Ok. so those of you who have read my previous posts know my son was a Nuke and going to leave on the 24th of next month for bootcamp. He recently was considering how to transfer and go into SEALS. His recruiter called on Monday and informed us that Daniel had been dismissed because he had Viral Meningitis. He was hospitalized for two days in March, it was just viral NOT bacterial. He fully recovered, I faxed all the discharge/follow up paperwork to the recruiter back in March. We just now get the call that said he has to wait 1 year from having this illnes to enlist again. His recruiter was stunned (so, he said) he also said all his test scores will still be valid and confirmed that Daniel will be eligilbe for just about anything because of his high scores. He also, off the record, said there will be plenty of jobs available for him because March will be the begining of the fiscal year and there are plenty of seats. We are all so sad. Daniel doesn't know what to do........we live on an island and most all of his class (only 28 of them) is going off to college and now he's stuck here. He's considering moving off ilsand and going to Bellingham to be near Western where a lot of his friends are going. He said he wants to be able to train and there are more opportunities off island (valid concern) for swimming, working out, etc. But along with that comes partying which he's never been into but we all know how quickly this can change. He is such a good kid! This breaks my heart! Has anyone ever heard of this? I beleive the recruiter said he was "trited out" but I have no idea what this means.......any ideas?
