I am a Navy mom of almost 5 years. They have been 5 years of excitement, trials, tribulations and now ending in dissapointment for our son. He has had a stellar record in the Navy every advancement you could imagine so quickly too- the Navy was his home. He had just recently enlisted for 6 more years to head back to Japan where he already served 3 there. We thought everything was going great - cloud nine. To receive a call from the Military that he tried to take his own life a month ago. This came as a total shock to us and our lives will never be the same. He was in treatment facility or AKA Psych ward for 48 hours- now on meds and therapy 4 times a week........... and the worst part he is now in Captains MAST as we speak because his urine test came back positive for something he admited to doing the night before he tried to kill himself! The Navy is taking the low rode on this one instead of praticing what they preach to Watch ALL Sailors, ASK for help, Its all BS- he was exactly as I read reprimanded for asking for help - and ridiculed for it. Now he may come home on a General DC with a IMPECABLE NAVY CAREER! I will not stop the fight on this one- all I have to say is watch out for your children............ stay in contact and make sure they are OK.
