Thanks for the update. "the squeaky wheel gets greased!" I learned this from one of my Chief's when I was "younger!"

I am sorry to hear about your son's issue with recruiting. My recommendation? Since your son has graduated high school already, have him go to a different Navy recruiter. Is he set on being a CT or IS - otherwise, you might want to see if the SPEC-OPS recruiter/coordinator would be willing to work with y'all.

Let me give you the step-by-step process of how it SHOULD have gone for y'all.

1. EST (practice test) - if qualifying score (50 or above) proceed to step 2.
2. Paperwork to include form 2807-2 and supporting documentation for medical condition(s).
3. Since there are medical condition(s), recruiter should have sent the forms 680, 2807-2 and medical documentation to MEPS doctors.
4. If doctor's were ok with the documentation or would want to see him to evaluate then recruiter would have taken your son to MEPS for ASVAB and physical.
5. ASVAB the night before processing.
6. the morning of processing - applicant goes to medical floor and does his physical. (at this point if the doc's could not make a determination, then they would send your son to a consultation).
7. Consultation would prove 1 of 3 things:
a. fit for duty
b. not fit for duty
c. not sure and must go to medical review board in TN.
8. Medical review board will determine eligibility. Once this is done it is a done deal for medical.

Is this the way things happened for your son?

What I don't get is if your son never got to a physical, then how did they send the documentation up without it?

Why in the world did he participate in a DEP event, before he was medically cleared?
Where was the supervision and did you or he give them permission (written) for allowing him to PT?

Thanks for the info. I am wondering-did y'all fill out all the medical forms and get all the documentation from the hospital, doctor (to include doctor's notes and prognosis) and send those? Did you all get a reply within 3 days of sending the original documents to MEPS? The medical review normally does not happen unless the MEPS doctors have reviewed it first and given your recruiter some kind of word - it is one of the following 3 possibilities - "your recruit is cleared to join", "he is ok to come down and we can see what is going on" or "bring him down and after see him, he might need a consult" Did he get a medical consult from a military doctor yet?

Thanks for the question. I must have some more information though. You mention that he took the ASVAB, did he also go to the Medical Screening portion yet? Is he colorblind or have bad eyes? Is there any other medical condition from his youth?

Welcome to NavyDads Lee! I'm sure you'll find the site as fun, useful, and educational as I have. Explore the site and make some friends, add your comments to a discussion or two, read the postings in the various groups-- even start one or two. I certainly have! If you have any questions or concerns about your sailor and what he is going through...ask! I'm sure someone here will have the answer or can point you in the right direction to find out. I'm lucky enough to have two sailors in the family - my son Eric (AM3) returned spring '09 from a seven-month cruise on the carrier Theodore Roosevelt (CVN-71) and my daughter Kat (MC3) is about to complete her five-year enlistment on the carrier Abraham Lincoln (CVN-72). And Lee this is a great place to brag about your sailor as well! So join in and let us know how Charles is doing! We do ask that you remember that we talk about the Navy here and we must keep the security and safety of our sailors in mind at all times. On the right side of every NavyDads page is an area we call About This Site. Please take a minute and read through the Operations Security (OPSEC) link and the NavyDads Guidelines link.

As a parent of a sailor currently or soon to be at Great Lakes you'll have many questions about what your son is going through. In the Navy Bootcamp group is a discussion called A MUST READ for all New Navy Parents. Take a few minutes to read through this post as it will do a lot to give you some understanding about what your sailor is learning and why. And be sure to check out the videos as they address many of your questions and concerns.

As PIR draws closer, be sure to spend some time going through the PIR-Tips, Hints and Helps group- we’ve tried to assemble some tips and suggestions to make your sailor's PIR more enjoyable. Best Regards- Paul

Lee, Welcome Aboard!

My son is an ABE aboard the USS Ronald Reagan in San Diego, Ca. and my family and I couldn't be prouder of him. When he first enlisted I found NavyForMoms in searching for answers to my son's future. I just knew their had to be a site for dads like n4m's but I was wrong. So I started this site so us dads would also have a place to call home. I'm new at this and I hope this site will benefit fathers that follow behind us. So jump right in share concerns, join groups, share info, and show off your Sailor. I'm so glad to find out their are so many proud Navy Dads just like myself. I hope this site benefits you and your family throughout your sons journey in the Navy. Thank Charles for his service for me and thanks again for joining us.

Sincerely, E.G.
