My son who has been in Dep for 5 months and greatly anticipating shipping out to bootcamp just called to say he is in Ship 5. He told me he had a panic attack and also hurt his back. They told him he is being separated from the Navy and receiving an honorable medical discharge. I feel so sad as he was so excited and wanting to serve his country. What kind of support is there for these kids who are in this situation? How can I help him once he is home? Is there anyone I can call for further information? I know that he will want to go back, is that even an option? He is a kind, quiet and soft spoken kid. Maybe this really isn't for him and we have to look at that. I just want to give him the best support possible. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
Thank you for the advice. Much appreciated.
