My son had a paper when he came home stating what he was paid what they took out $650 and he owed them $77. Not sure how in the hell he is suppose to pay that back. Things happen for a reason, so he will get through this. Odd your son came home sick too. I to am disenchanted with the Navy. He will never be able to get back in now.
