    My son seemed so ready to go when he left for boot camp. Physically, he was ready. Mentally, he sure seemed ready... I was in the Navy and I tried to prepare him for boot camp as much as I could, he seemed like he had a decent idea of what to expect.

    I got the first "Stomach wrenching call" over a week ago. I posted about the call, you can read that if you want more info.

    Yesterday, I got another call. He put in a request to drop out of training. It was denied and he was reverted to the next company. His spirits are definitely down, and his attitude before starting with his new company is "I only have to hold on for two weeks and I can submit another Drop on Request."

    I am preparing myself for the possibility that he will be coming home from boot camp without graduating, but I'm hoping his new company and his new CC's will motivate him to finish.

    If they deny a Drop on Request, they obviously feel he can still be motivated and trained. My understanding is they normally deny twice and separate on the third request.

    My question is this. How often do recruits request to drop, but still get motivated to graduate? They wouldn't deny requests if it never happened, right?

    I'm hoping there are some company commanders on this forum that can shed some light, or maybe some graduates that had to be convinced. Not a whole lot I can do either way, I just have to pray his head will clear up and he will train.

    When I was in boot camp some people just completely gave up and there was no convincing them otherwise. Being reverted to a new company wont give him the motivation to finish if he doesn't want to. All it will do is give him more unwanted attention from company commanders, their form of motivation is not very comforting. If he really does want to be in the coast guard he should have the motivation to finish. Just remind him that boot camp is just mind games, it's all fake stress. But dont push him to finish if he doesn't really want to join. There hacs been several people fresh from boot camp on my cutter who just can't handle being underway and last less than 2 weeks before they get send back to land. I wish him luck, boot camp was tough, but easy to make it through if you do what you are told.
