Hi, My son is three weeks into Navy
Basic and has been diagnosed with stress fractures. He is currently in on a medical status. Do you know how the services treat the recovery and will he be allowed to continue Basic? I have received a current letter with this information. I am deployed to Kuwait for six months (just finished month four) and have only been able to receive information from him via letters. Thanks.
JA: Are you overseas or stateside?
Customer: In Kuwait until the end of October
JA: Have you talked to anyone in the chain of command about this?
Customer: NO, I just got his letter yesterday. My Ex-wife
had e-mailed me with some general information about it and his change of address but that is all I know.
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: NO, just basically how the Navy views this medical situation and what choices he has concerning the continuation of his training? He has a projected recovery of 8-10 weeks. How much recovery time will the Navy allow before it is too long. He is a special ops associated career field of Navy Diver, will this give him a better chance to stay in? I am just totally clueless about how the Navy will look at this and what items they look at, thanks.
