Hello everyone, my daughter just called me to tell me she is being discharged due to having asthma. This is a first of me ever hearing that she has asthma, until now. She left August 1st 2017 for basic training, since she didn't finish not even a month, what is going to happen??

She will be sent home with a medical entry level separation. She'll now need to find a new direction for her life.

I have no idea what your daughters situation is, however, I've seen this hundreds of times during my 15 years of recruiting for the Navy. Kids seem to think that complaining about some minor issue will get them some relief from what they are being asked to do in the military (physical fitness evolution, deployments, a military exercise, etc.) and what they don't understand is that the military doesn't mess around with this stuff. If you indicate you can't perform military duties you are putting your enlistment in jeopardy and leaving it up to someone else to determine if you get to stay in or not.

Kids need to understand they are enlisting to serve in the military and it isn't like it was growing up where their parents allowed them to quit whatever they started when things got tough. You have to perform in the military or more than likely they are going to tell you to go home.

Anyway, I do wish your daughter the best as she starts her life as a civilian.
