I need help concerning ship 5

  • My daughter decided to enlist in the Navy, she left for bootcamp and was set to graduate on March 7th,

  • I received a phone call 2 days ago informing me she was being administratively separated due to a medical record document from when she was 15

  • I am active duty with 20 years of service, my daughter was going into the CTI rate

  • She was qualified by DOD to apply to the Naval Academy, received the presidential nomination, was waitlisted to NAPS in RI. Unfortunately there were no seats available.

  • Aubrey graduated with honors, a scholar athlete, competed at state level in outdoor track, indoor track and cross country. Swam for her high school and played soccer. She received the Marine Corps athletic award

  • When she was 15 years old, I took her to see a psychiatrist in Jacksonville NC, not by my choice

  • She went through some step parent issues.

  • The provider barely spoke to either of us, documented inaccurate information prescribed my daughter with inappropriate medication, which I told her not to take.

  • Now this is coming back to haunt her, she did divulge seeing the provider before enlisting. And was cleared by MEPS

  • She also was declared fit for duty by the Psychiatrist at RTC Great Lakes

  • Why would the Navy take this dedicated outstanding recruit from her training and now admin sep her? I don't understand. Several calls are in the process to appeal the decision. I need anyone's assistance, any suggestions or comments.

  • And my daughter passed the second class swimmer qualification

  • What is RTC doing? Here is a recruit that has dreamed of serving her country honorably, was honest on her intake physical and is now being punished.

  • I feel this is a great dis-service to our country. SR Aubrey Bratton will make an outstanding addition to our fleet.

  • Which congressman do I contact

  • How do we appeal this decision

  • Any suggestions or comments to assist are in great need

  • I'm active duty stationed in CA, my home of record is OH

  • Any samply letters to a senator regarding this type of situation

  • legal informed me she had a good case to appeal

Carrie - I am so sorry to hear that your daughter is going through this.  There is a fairly active "Ship 5" group on Navy for Moms - if you haven't already joined you should. I know that many people in the past have said that it is easier to fight if you stay at BC (although it could take quite some time).  Don't give up! I wish you and your daughter the best - and I hope you can get answers soon. 

Do we know what the outcome was?
