What is the name of your state? NY - Please help - my son is awol from the Navy and I have tried just about everything to get him to return but he wants out of the Navy really bad. He is already going on 3 weeks not reporting to duty and I know he intends to stay out the 30 plus days with the hopes of getting an Other Than Honorable Discharge. I also know he doesn't understand just what this can mean for his future. So this is my question - am I wrong in not reporting him? Should I go to the recruiting station and say he's here? I simply don't know what to do - he's old enough to make his own decision and if I report him and he gets brought back before the 30 days and hates it so much he eventually does something really drastic, I don't think I can live with myself, but I feel very wrong watching him make this mistake. I understand that he may not be fit for the Navy and that he's had a hard time for many reasons but I don't know the right course of action.
