    Received a call from my son after day 2 at Cape May saying MEPS measured him incorrectly and now based on his height at Boot camp he is over the weight limit and being discharged. It has been 3 days and no word on when he's coming home. His phone is off. Did they possibly change their minds? He could lose 3 lbs in a matter of days. He is able pass the physical fitness no problem. I'm hoping he gets to stay. Any thoughts?

    And this is why most recruiters won't allow their recruits to ship to boot camp unless they're 5 lbs under their max weight.

    Have you heard from your son? Something similar to this happened to a family member and no one has heard from him.

    Recruits who are separated due to weight are discharged and sent home as soon as possible once all administrative work is complete and transportation can be made to the airport at the convenience of the government. Sometimes this process can take several weeks, other times it can be done in a week or less. Your daughter will be eligible to reenlist 6 months after discharge if she is within weight standards.

    When MEPS measures an applicants height they do not do so based on Coast Guard standards. At meps if you measure 64.1 inches they round up to 65 inches. The Coast Guard would measure this at 64 inches. This is where many recruits run in to issues at Cape May.
