My son met with a recruiter in February, signed paperwork and required a medical waiver, scored a 99 on the ASVAB, and the medical waiver was obtained in May. MEPS was supposed to happen first week in June. The recruiter booked the flight for MEPS but then advised that the MEPS appointment had to be canceled due to it being over 90 days since the original paperwork was signed. Does this happen regularly and is it anything to be worried about? We realize that the recruiter is BUSY and spread thin. We're so grateful for the opportunity and the hard work put in by the recruiter so my son doesn't want to bother him by asking a bunch of questions. Thank you for any information.

Like you said, the recruiters are busy and spead thin, so this could've been something that slipped off his radar. It's also possible that something may have happened in the recruiter's personal life requiring last minute leave. At any rate, it would be worth your son's time to call/text/email and advise what occurred so things can get back on track.

Stuff happens during the process. When my son went through MEPS the recruiting office had his rank wrong twice and lost the documentation of his retired Colonel Grandfather to do the final Oath of Enlistment. Then while he is underway he puts his name on the A School list only to discover MEPS said he was color blind. Turns out he failed the first test and passed the second put they didn't record it. He had to wait until they got back to home port to retest. So stuff happens.
