Customer Question

Hi,My son is at Lackland AFB in TX BMT. After being there two weeks and completing all task as directed he was placed Med Hold. He did not go to medical but was told to by an officer who observed him favoring one foot. While at the med center his foot was x-rayed and he is told he has arthritis and can't continue. The reason he is in med hold has nothing to do with arthritis, his feet was sore due to the boots. He was issued a light weight boot which does not irritate his feet yet he is told he will be discharged. He is torn in that this is what he wanted as a carrier. He ha a degree in criminology and had plan to further this carrier in the USAF. I do not feel he has been allowed due process of military policy. He is not been given the opportunity to go back to BMT to determine if the diagnose condition will impact his ability to perform the required duties for a recruit in BMT. Hi my name is Emery ***** *****
