After fighting separation since July, my daughter's case was denied, and she will be coming home next week. She did everything asked of her, passed Boot Camp as a section leader, and worked her way into a position of responsibility while waiting, had 5 letters of recommendation from her superiors, and they still rejected her. Gotta admit, feeling pretty upset with whoever made this decision.

Sunspots I am in Loss for words, I cannot express enough how truly sorry I am that this has happened to your Daughter.. I am praying that your Daughter finds Peace with this situation and the strength and courage it took for her to fight and stand her ground for something that was so important to her. sending Prayers your way for you and your Daughter.

Thank you for your kind words. She called some of her former employers while on liberty, and has a job waiting on the following Monday. She has also mentioned talking to the National Guard, so maybe she can still serve,just in a different way. We'll see what happens. Best to you and yours.

Cause of separation?

I am sorry to hear this. Our daughter just left 11/22 They Disqualified her twice before two different ship dates and she fought both. (Ridiculous reasons and she found in their own words in the handbook where they were wrong) It has been such an uphill battle - I would have given up long ago. She has been so determined. I can’t imagine how your feeling :( I would be pretty upset too. I pray for peace for your daughter as well as clear direction for the next steps of her path. I know ours was stressed out when she did finally ship wondering if something else would come up while she was at boot camp.
How long does it take for SR to be processed out once the separation is in place?

Ship 5 is for those recruits in the process of being discharged from Boot Camp. It takes 2-3 weeks to be processed out once a recruit is moved to Ship 5 (SEPS). (Join Ship 5 Moms(Formerly Ship 17) and see FAQ about SEPS and http://www.bootcamp.navy.mil/faq.html#separations for more information.
