Our son is due to be discharged from the AF on Tuesday, Aug 2. He was given notice on Monday, so we're suffering a bit of whiplash. Seems like his unit really wants him gone.
He's had a pretty good service record for the past 4 yrs. They tried to get him out last Dec. with a court martial for breaking a plane part and not repairing a plane properly. We spent money on an attorney and he was left with a CM on his record, but kept in the service. The repair he was accused of messing up turned out to be intact when the plane arrived post-CM and his crew saw it. Strike 1. When on leave in CA, he got accused of a DUI. No arrest, case isn't settled, but his unit and new cmdr said you're out. Looking for information on his rights, what his future looks like, what benefits he may be qualified for, and how much of a long shot will an upgrade be? He has hearing impairment and pretty heavy depression right now.
