Hello,My son is currently waiting in SEPS in the Navy and has been there for 10 days. He does not have an injury that he is being treated for and has no real purpose for being there except to wait. He is very unhappy and says it is very depressing in there and just wants to come home. He has seen many of his shipmates taken to the psych ward because they cannot handle being in SEPS.

My son, who has been in the Arkansas National Guard, has

My son, who has been in the Arkansas National Guard, has been, or is on the verge of being discharged from the US Army, for depression. He was at AIT and some circumstances arose that just pushed him over the edge of depression. The medical team can recommend a "517" discharge. Will he lose his benefits? He has no disciplinary actions and the simple fact is he couldn't pass his final PT test after 68-W training (5th in the class). I am worried he will lose all his benefits.JA: Because laws vary from state to state, could you tell me what state is this in?Customer: He is in Texas at Ft. Sam but lives in Little Rock and is a member of the Arkansas Nat'l Guard.JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: We are talking with the IG office at Ft. Sam.

They saber rattled for a while about Chapter 13 and Article 15 but that was to scare him. He admitted to cheating and lying to the Sergeant. The IG official spoke to the 1st sergeant and he is just pissed Sean lied but stated that Sean was very much "worth saving" as a soldierJA: OK. Got it.
