Well, I have not heard from Tyler in over 3 weeks. If he has been sent to separation I wish I could find out for sure. I wish I knew when he was being sent home. I read on one of the blogs that they would send the sick and injured home on a bus! I don't like that at all. It seem as long as they are of use to them they fly them there and when they are of no use to them they stick them on a bus! I do not even know what is wrong with him. Apparently there is no way for me to find out what is going on. Does anyone out there know what I can do? I would appreciate any info that anyone has to offer. Thank you.
Thank you so much cntryangel. I havent been able to talk to Tyler for over 2 weeks now. He did not call Sunday like I expected him too. I don't know if they dont allow it or what or he just wasnt in the mood. I know that he is disappointed about the separation. I do not know what is wrong with him other than he has a muscular disorder. I don't know if he is afraid to tell me whats wrong or if he really doesnt know, but it has to be something serious or they wouldnt be discharging him. If your son knows whats wrong, would you please ask him for me. Thank you so much. I hope your son is ok and will soon be off ship 4 and back into his division. Shirley
