My son is in Army BCT, close to graduation. He is performing well and loves it. Has wanted to be in the Army. Has completed 100% of training, passing everything. Strong fitness scores.
He had a childhood injury to his hand that prevents him from rendering a perfect salute. His pinky finger will not pull in beside his ring finger. This issue was assessed exhaustively prior to entering service and he received a USAREC Medical Waiver.
He was confronted him early and sent him to the Docs. Docs said no medical or convenience of the government discharge for pre-existing condition (Chapter 5) because the condition was known and he has a waiver. SO, one Drill Sergeant has threatened Chap 11.
If he is performing well (except salute) and wants to stay, will they have grounds?
