Customer Question
My son graduated boot camp...
My son graduated boot camp and is now back after his ten day leave waiting on infantry training to start. He feels like he made a big mistake and wants to change to reserves or get out all together. He is crying all day. Not sleeping well or eating well and we are very concerned about him. Is there anyway he can quit or change his mos?

Can you provide an answer to my question regarding my son?
Military Lawyer: P. Simmons, Military Lawyer replied 2 years ago

I can...and we can chat on the phone about this if you like for a nominal fee ($5)....but it is important to me, as I do this (answer such questions) to provide income for my family, that customers will agree to rate (and therefore pay) for the answers. That is why I am requesting you can confirm you are willing to do so.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
