I'm not one to believe "that just the way it is", I believe there is an exception to every policy, I've seen it! I've seen people busted in rank and the following week repromoted so they could reenlist (I was an Air Force personnelist for 21 years). I also believe "leave no stone unturned". If she doesn't try to appeal, she'll never know. Please take a deep breath and let THIS process work and try again.
I'm so sorry, I truly feel your frustration. My son is also on Ship 5 and has a legal appointment today so we'll know today when he's sent back home.

Take a deep breath and take one day at a time, there is still hope. She needs to get healthy first.
Thank you. I spoke to him yesterday and he's in very good spirits. He plans on reapplying in 6 months and we're gathering information for a waiver for that time. I think his time in Ship 5 has clarified his dreams, he knows he wants to enter the Navy and is grateful he was given the opportunity to reside in SEPSA. God has a way and a plan. Best wishes to your daughter too.
Hi My son has been in ship 5 since Monday, he hurt his back pretty good during swim jumps. I spoke with him this morning and he sounds pretty dejected and bored. He does have a plan and working with legal to make sure his waiver allows him to go back in, he will come home heal and then in 6mos go back. I spoke with the recruiter here and they indicated to us if he can ensure the right waiver, come home see medical doctors here and then get their sign-off it can be quicker that appealing while there......I think at this point it depends on what is right for them and he seems to have a plan and articulated it ver maturely. I am very proud of him and look forward to him joining again when the time is right. He does seem even more determined to make it work and now just wants to make sure he is ready emotionally and physically before going back.
His maturity is an indication of his upbringing. Be proud mom and stay strong for him so he can continue to do what he feels is right for his future. Best wishes and healthy healing.
Thank you here's to hoping he heals quickly!
