no, he is not in the military. We sent him to stay out there with his sister and brother-in-law as he came to us and indicated he was on drugs (cocaine) and needed to get out of the invironment that kept drawing him back in.
He is 32 years old, has had a diagnosis of some sort about 8 years ago? He is paranoid and cannot keep a job, even though he is a certified welder. He suffers from depression and was seeing the local state run mental health facility in Oklahoma City, hence the zoloft, but we all felt it was important to get him away from the drugs.
He has no income at all, no transportation (other than sister driving him around). And of course, he cannot work on the base. He can only stay there so long, so we are getting rather desperate to find first treatment, then somehow, a place to live, not sure where yet. He really cannot come back and live at home, that is becoming an intenable situation, as my husband suffers from treatment resistant depression, PTSD etc. etc. and his mental health is always a precarious situation. Adding a son who cannot work and has mood swings of his own is just not working anymore. On the other hand, I am not sure we can "throw him out on the streets" either.
He does have a criminal background, but is currently on probation and should be off soon. Nothing other than shoplifting for almost 8 years.
Barstow would be the closest city to Ft. Irwin. His sister is willing to drive him there for services.
Thank you for any assistance you might be able to provide. Getting desperate on this end!
