My son is in his fourth week of air force boot , and he got sick, I do not know what his sickness is ? Do you know what happens when some one get sick during boot camp ? Do they stay in the dorm ? Go somewhere to get medical treatment ? Will this push back their graduation ? Any information you can give me regrading this would be great.

Thanks, Wally

Thanks to both you and your son.

Wally, first let me apologize for not asking your question sooner but Lynette has done a great job in giving you an answer.

She is correct. The Air Force will take very good care of your son. My son got sick during boot but not sick enough to be sent back in training. But if it is need they will take him out of training until he can return to training. As Lynette said they will put him back in were he had left off. Now that will mean his graduation date will change but you will be notified of any change in dates. The Air Force wants your son to graduate and they want you to be at the graduation so they will do all they can to have both happen. Please keep us up to date as to what is happening and if you have any more questions please ask.

A question about the Parent Pins. My nephew will be graduating Jan 20th and Sister in-law wanted to know if her husband (nephews step-dad) will get a Parent pin aswell, or are they just for biological parents only?

My son is going to get commissioned may 8 2015, I herd that they don't give out parent pins anymore, is this true? Just in case I went online looking for one to purchase, no love. Where can I get one, I want one so bad. I feel compelled to show my pride daily.

I had not heard that they don't give the parent pins out any more. I will see what I can find out.

Comment by Gary Hatcher on April 23, 2015 at 8:16pm
Thanks for your response. Just want to show everyone how proud I am of my son and my country. Since I "regrettably" didn't serve, I give my youngest son.
