Thank you for responding to me. I am no going to make an issue of this with the Navy yet. You are correct that to fan the flames now would only make matters worse. I didn't want to sound like I was going to war over this issue. I have had my own experience in the Army when you try to push buttons and the consequences they bring. I still have hopes that this will resolve itself after he graduates. When he graduates. We were advised just days ago he is in the fit program. We know from other members and yourself what that entails so we will sit and wait for him to get to a school and see if this resolves itself. We will encourage him to follow this up then. We were just looking to see if anyone else has gone through this and could enlighten us on their experience. The information you gave us will help tremendously when and if it comes to my son following up on his own that is why I was sending this out to everyone. Thank you for taking the time to respond to me very much and for giving me this good advise.
JIm, We thought originally that he did. He called yesterday 9/5/15 spoke for about 10 minutes. He said he PASSED THE PRONE FLOAT!!! but would now have to do the PFA on Tuesday. He said he has to do the whole PFA over on Tuesday, I thought you do only what you didn't pass??? anyway when I asked what the issue was for the run he couldn't give me a straight answer. I'll ask again today he said he would call today Sunday.We hope he does. He did say if he passes PFA Tuesday, he will do Battle Station Wednesday then he would graduate with his division on FRiday the 11th. We are on pins and needles that he does as we need to cancel the airline tickets by WEdnesday 5pm?? if he doesn't. we are ready to climb the roof(hahaha). We told him to hang in there and do your best. We will advise of what we hope will be good news no later than Wednesday. We do want to be there at PIR. Pray for our son. Thank you.
I believe that his paygrade will correct itself upon completion of Basic....until then, everyone is an SR!
