Navy Dads

My son was just informed he will not be continuing with his training for submarine duty.  He failed too many quizzes and tests.  He is currently in Groton, Conn.  I am curious as to what happens to him now and if there is any kind of timeline for him to be re-assigned?  I am also curious what the drop-out rate is for this training?  Anyone out there that can answer my questions?  Much appreciated.  I am still very proud of him and disappointed for him in this situation.

He will, most likely, be assigned to a surface ship in his current rate. That is generally what happens to Sailors that are academically dropped from Sub School. There is a possibility that he could be converted to a different rate, but every submarine rating has a surface counterpart so that generally only happens in exceptional circumstances. Time line can vary because there are so many things in play (available billets, ship schedules, funding, etc.). Could be a week. Could be a month or 2. He'll probably get some leave time between leaving Sub School and reporting to his new command.
