He will call again one day next week. I just recieve phone call yesterday say my son failed physical test. They left message on my phone since I missed call, so I am not even able to talk to him or ask questions to anyone. Can anyone tel me what do I need to do? Jenny, t he FAQ indicates that the separations process takes 10 to 21 business days, but it has been longer lately due to the MANY being separated due to failing the initial run. I have seen 5 to 7 weeks or more for some. My son has been in SEPs for two weeks now.
He called me last week saying he was going to talk to Legal and then he'd know when he's coming home. I haven't heard from him since. If the average time in SEPs is 10 to 20 work days, I'm starting to worry. I'd welcome some words of wisdom. I second everything Dianne stated. While heartbreaking for you and your son, when life throws these curveballs, we gotta learn how to swing the bat to knock 'em outta the park and continue focusing forward on our next move.
I have viewed my life like a pinball machine at times as I bounce from one thing to the next until I find my groove. When one didn't suit me, I pursued the next and picked up something I learned from each one to benefit the next until I finally landed my dream job of working at newspaper newsrooms.
Same with your son: He will find another path on his life's journey and as long as he has a strong family supporting him, he will be well. My heart broke to read this. You have such a strong and determined son! But I can imagine how his heart is breaking along with yours. So glad that he was able to get back in I hope that he can get healthy once again and try again if that is his dream.
There are none when they are still in Bootcamp. But I pray that your son will find his path soon God has allowed this for a reason for sure I hope that your son is able to be home soon Check out these Navy Social Links Last Month Next Month.

However, a lot of people are in separations for exaggerated mental conditions. Some Sailors and recruits will tell the medical staff they are suicidal because they don't want to be a part of the Navy anymore. It's easy to get out of the Military, " You just have to say you want to kill yourself.
However, there are people who end up in the separation's ship for bull-shit. A lot of people sign up for the military because of the medical benefits, but the irony is almost any medical condition can get you fired or separated as they call it. Sometimes the doctors here are too eager to disqualify sailors and call them crazy because they report their emotions to psychologists who interrogate them and ask them inappropriate and uncomfortable questions like how many sexual partners have you had and have you ever been raped?
I wasn't talking to myself I was reciting the sailors creed. Not only was he asking leading questions, he was insisting I was hiding a mental disorder. Now, I have to fight for my Navy Career, because he was an awkward and assumptive creepy dude.
The truth is this kids are sleep deprived, just got yelled at and are being interviewed in a high pressure environment. They think they can relax and vent in the therapist office because they are told they can, but they really can't. When we express any emotion, they label us with mental disorders that are career ending.
