We have a son that is struggling with leaving KP. We continue to support and encourage him to stick it out and have told him that he has not been there long enough to make an informed decision or opinion. 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. He has never been one to quit anything and it kills me to even hear him mention it. Any advice would be appreciative.
