Our Son went to Boot camp on 01/28/16 . While there he was
Our Son went to Boot camp on 01/28/16 . While there he was having a lot of knee problems and was sent for a MRI and asked if he wanted to continue, and like a good Recruit, he said yes, and did. Came home for his 10 days on April 22nd then Returned for SOI. After only his second week there he was sent to medical for x-rays and told he had a list of problems including 1) Bipartite Patilla 2) Patellar Grind 3) Edema 4) Ecchymosis 5) Erythema 6)Significant Pes Platnus 7) Knee Effusion and more he couldn't remember.He was told that they were going to try knee braces and shoe inserts for a week to see if it helped, but they never did. He was not given any pain medication and was told he actually had bone spurs in his knees.Two years ago we had taken him to a specialist because he was complaining that his knees ached, but they found nothing. So they are trying to say he withheld this information, which he didn't, because it was in the records from the referring Dr.'s office, which they have.They are Discharging him now medically. However, my question is how in he heck did they miss on his physical the extremely flat feet, and let him in ??? And will he get his money back for his dress blues?

My son was at Air Force boot camp, halfway through. He was
Hello,My son was at Air Force boot camp, halfway through. He was selected to get an Intelligence branch job and was starting the clearance process when in one interview he was asked if he had ever attempted suicide. He said he had, as a child of 12 or so (this was news to his mother and I). Based on that, the Air Force told him he could apply for a waiver and wait, or go home and apply for the waiver. Now he is being told there is no way that the waiver will be granted, after he was told yes, there is a chance. I don't know the details of what he actually did, but does not the fact that he was a child, and there was no Emergency Room visit or any kind of medical problem resulting from the attempt have any mitigating effect? He is now processing out and will be home in a few days. Assuming he would like to try to get back in, what would you advise?

In my last question I told that I'm supposed to leave
In my last question I told that I'm supposed to leave boot camp for reserve navy in few days. And due to certain situations in my life, probably I will not be able to join boot camp. I was told in this forum that I will get ELS (entry level separation) and it will not impact my naturalization process for US citizenship. Currently I'm a US law full permanent resident. Now my question is that when I was reading "ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA FOR NATURALIZATION APPLICATION BY USCIS", there are 2 things, about which I want to know1-Have you ever received a discharge from US armed forces on the ground that you are an alien?My question is that iam a lawful permanent resident and of course alien. In my case, if I get ELS discharge for not joining boot camp, do I get into this question category?
I am supposed to join navy boot camp as a reserve in few
I am supposed to join navy boot camp as a reserve in few days. 2 months ago,I went to MEPS with my recruiter and took first oath. I was supposed to leave for boot camp at the end of this year but suddenly one day my recruiter asked me that I'm leaving at the end of april. From first oath to uptil now, certain things have happened in my life .Due to these , it is difficult for me to join navy. Can I deny to go to boot camp?. If I don't go in boot camp, will it have any impact on my naturalization process (at the end of this year).? Will there be any impact on my job or doing business in future?. If I don't go in boot camp, what kind of discharge, navy will issue me?
