I'm sorry that your son is being separated.....There is a chance he could be processed out in a few weeks but there is also the chance it could take longer. It just depends on how many are in the separation process. Since he isn't fighting it I would think it would be on the shorter end of the time frame.
Unfortunately this group isn't real active - but if you look in the main discussion of the group I believe there is a link to the Ship 5 Facebook group. You might want to join that - you should be able to get more answers there.
Good luck to your son.
How long did it end up being for your son before he got to come home? How is he doing? I'm going through the exact same thing with my son. Worried sick!!!!
Hello worriednavymama- I see its been awhile since you posted. We are currently in this same predicament. Son has his REU eval today. I am in the early stages of how this process works. Would you be able to give me an update or helpful tips on what I can do to help him and/or this process move along. Thanks,
