Navy vet says mental illness led to discharge and massive debt

Seems to me, you make chief as a nuke, you get some consideration. I guess the Navy doesn't see it that way.

This guy is getting seriously screwed.

If they let him cross rate/go conventional engineer after his clearance was pulled, but he couldn't maintain weight, then they could legitimately boot him. It sucks, but it definitely happens – even with a legit medical reason for not making weight (happened to a friend of mine, in fact. And he was a chief, too).

The part that's really hosed up is how much money they're taking from him. I get the SRB repayment, but what the hell are they digging into his severance pay for?

They threw him a pass because he was a nuke, and then he wasn't a nuke. Make weight.

There's more to this story, I'm betting.

FC,
hit your Windows key, then in the search bar type 'On Screen Keyboard'.

This will give you a digital spacebar.

Let me know if further instruction needed via PM.

I think this is what they got him for

Policy

a. Administrative separation (ADSEP) processing is mandatory for members when they do not achieve prescribed physical readiness standards by failing to pass three physical fitness assessment (PFA) cycles in the most recent 4-year period. This period is calculated from the date of the current PFA failure and counted backwards 4 calendar years (e.g., a member with failures on 1 December 2008, 2 April 2011, and 2 Dec 2012 would have 2 failures in the most recent 4-year period). COs or officers-in-charge may request waivers from ADSEP processing per reference (a), enclosure (2), paragraph 2c.

b. Active duty (AD) personnel who have completed 18 or more years of active service are not exempt from ADSEP processing. Members with a third PFA failure prior to 30 June 2011 and an approved Fleet Reserve or retirement date will be allowed to retire (grandfathered in). Those with a third failure subsequent to 30 June 2011 will be processed for ADSEP. Forward complete case to Navy Personnel Command (NAVPERSCOM), Enlisted
