I'm hoping for some direction here. I will try to be brief, but there's a lot of info.
My son was set to ship out to BC in September (all cleared medically, papers signed). However, over the summer he had a cyst removed and ingrown toenail removed. This was all so unexpected.
All paperwork, doc notes/labs and even a handwritten note from the doctor explicitly stating the nature of the cyst (fluid only-non cancerous....)--all of this was submitted--and re-submitted.
Anyhow, ship date was cancelled. In addition, our recruiter went on leave and my son's processing was handed over to someone else. A new pre-screen had to be filled out and re-submitted. That was done the first week of October 2018.
We have heard nothing.
His ASVAB will expire in May 2019.
We have checked in with our new recruiter weekly. I know the office is extremely busy, and I also know due to our recruiter going on leave, our son's processing was not the only one this new recruiter inherited.
Time is passing and we are all becoming very discouraged. Our son's life is put on hold and we are really at a loss of what to do because we are not getting answers. We have only been told our paperwork is held up at MEPS.
Seeing he WAS cleared and with a ship date, the medical paperwork recently submitted was about 4-5 pages, I guess I would have thought we would have an answer by now?
Any ideas or direction?
Thank you so much.
