Our son, is in BMT at Lackland AFB. He was placed on Med
Our son, David is in BMT at Lackland AFB. He was placed on Med hold as of last friday. There is talk of ELS because of a short stay in a mental health facility when he was 16. He was placed on Lexapro, very low dose. He didn't disclose this info to the recruiter because he didn't think about it.....while on med hold, case worker/psychiatrist must have assessed him. MTI's and Psychiatrist all agree that he is a well-adjusted young man and that mom and dad must have blown this out of proportion. He has been off of Lexapro for over 1.5 years and was on it for 11 months. Please and thank you, ***** ***** of a young man who wants to be in the Airforce. … read more
