son still waiting for discharge from navy bootcamp. been in what they call ISOLATION since aug 21st. they are telling him that he will be discharged maybe 4-6 MOORE weeks. they say he is manic depressive, so they dont want him anymoore. boy, sure would have been nice if they would have figured this out before they smashed all my sons hopes and dreams. he wanted this moore than ANYTHING in his whole life. i have never seen him work so hard for anything EVER. he WAS devestated. now he is just so mad and very disalusioned. i so dont blaim him. he has also been fleeced of his pay so far. had to pay 500.00 for uniforms he will never wear, they told him he would be reimbersed 80% for the uniforms, but he has yet to see that. he had to pay for diddy bag and no telling what else. he was on a 1200.00 a month pay scale and as of today he only has 397.00 in bank. he went in on 8-10-07. he was only in bootcamp for 3 wks when they advised him they no longer want him. so here i wait. have only got to talk to him one time. didnt sound very good. anyone else have anything similar or any advice. he is 23 now. think he will get his money while he is still a young man?i am pretty jaded by this whoke thing. but i was against it from the start. i was supporting my sons dissision. now i wish i would have pushed for him not to go. any thoughts or suggestouns or anything?

I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
