My son just called me tonight and they've separated him out into medical. Apparently they sent him over to Ship 5 today because of a severe headache and started an IV and put some medication into it and when he told him he felt better they informed him they had treated him for a migraine and were now holding him. They may actually send him home for a headache! He has never had a diagnosis of migraines. He was informed that he can have legal counsel on Friday. He is extremely upset because he knows that once he's sent home he'll probably never get back in. Do we have any recourse here? I am so devastated for him.
Ship 5 is for those recruits in the process of being discharged from Boot Camp. Join the group, Ship 5 Moms(Formerly Ship 17) (clickable link), and you most likely will find the answers you seek. Know that it can take 2-3 weeks for him to go through the process and return home.
