We have a son that is struggling with leaving KP. We continue to support him in sticking it out and telling him that he has not been there long enough to make an informed decision. He is worried that if he stays past acceptance day he will owe the USNR 8 years reserve duty. Is this true? Of course we cannot make him stay and through all the forums we have read it seems that encouraging him to make it through sea duty will tell him if this is the right or wrong career path for him.
