discharge

last week my son suffered a seizure after work, it happened out front of his barracks. he hit his head pretty hard, CAT scan showed a little swelling, and he was cleared to go back to work. Since then he developed a stutter(sounds like he suffered a stroke). Now he has been told,  they are starting the discharge process. I'm not understanding how they can determine to discharge him, if he hasn't even seen the Neurologist which is scheduled for this week. He has all motor skills, just speech problem. no previous medical issues. Any ideas why?

because they are downsizing and they can discharge you for what ever reason they want.

It has more to do with the seizure than the speech problem.

The PP's are right. At this point, they are looking for any excuse to discharge people.

they can start the prcess to discharge and as soon as the doctor declares him unfit for duty they will have him out in 30-60 days.

he will be med boarded- don't let him sign anything with out taking it to legal tho.

It's because of the seizure we had a guy when I was reserves he worked as an Art also which means he worked for the unit as a civilian. He wasn't allowed to deploy mainly because he wasn't allowed to carry a weapon, he wasn't allowed to drive a government vehicle and he wasn't allowed to work on the aircraft alone anymore, he wasn't allowe to sign off jobs etc. it's just the rules of the military, it didn't matter what his doctor said about him being allowed to drive etc. because e wa an art it was a longer discharge process but he was discharged.

 It's the seizure that made them discharge him. They don't want him to be in the middle of something dangerous and have another seizure and end up hurting himself again, or hurting others. ((HUGS))
