Hi all. This is my first post on this forum. My son joined up last July as a trainee Naval Airman (aircraft handler). He passed out of basic training at Raleigh in October, and has been at Culdrose since November. He's made some good friends, but since he's gone to Culdrose he hates it, and he's been worse since he's gone back after the Xmas break. He keeps sending me messages saying he wants to leave and come home. He says 3 have handed in their notice, and lots are unhappy. The first round of exams before Xmas, every single one of them apart from one failed. He says the general mood is very depressing, and that all of them think the course is rubbish as they've taken the firefighting out of the course, which is the element a lot of them wanted. Help! What do I do? I don't know what to say. I don't want him to be unhappy, but I don't want him to make a massive mistake he'll regret. I also have a feeling he doesn't have an option to leave any more anyway? I don't want him to do something stupid in the vain hope he'll get discharged. He told me if you fail 3 exams you get discharged. Is this true? If so, is that his way out, just keep failing exams?
