DON'T post critical information including future destinations or ports of call; future operations, exercises or missions; deployment or homecoming dates.  

DO be smart, use your head, always think OPSEC when using texts, email, phone, and social media, and watch this video: "Importance of Navy OPSEC."

My son was sent to ship 5 last week. He had anxiety and wanted to come home. He was told not to sign allowing me access. They told him it would make things longer. He has been there 6 days. I got my first all this morning. How long has the process taken in your experience? He was told 2 to 4 weeks. Some kid just told him he has been there 6 mo ths waiting to talk to legal. Please give me some hope that it will be 2 to 4 weeks

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,
