I'm not sure if this is in the right location for this type of question, but I'll ask anyway
Anyway, I'm a SSG stationed in Korea right now with approx. 7 months left in country. I was stationed in Aberdeen Proving Grounds and came here with a HAP to Ft Carson. My wife and I have one son, which they are still in Maryland. Since Caine started kindergarten in 2005, he has had to see a school speech therapist along with other types of specialist through the next two years of school. Up until the start of this new school year in Aug 07 he hadn't had to be put on any medications for AD/HD. My wife decided to put him on some meds because his outburst and lack of concentration in school was hurting his education.
Skip forward to January 08. Caine started having "tics", which is mild outburst of tourettes, while he was on the first drug. My wife took him to see his doctor and she abruptly took him off of that med and made an appointment with a Pediatric Neurologist that specializes in tic & tourette disorder at Johns Hopkins Hospital. Now I don't know how long these appointments are going to last, and counselors at his school think he should stay there thinking that a move would put undue stress on him. I want Caine to stay in the area he in because of the quality of hospitals around there are considered the best in the world, and the continuity of teachers, counselors, and therapists in the school would be best for him.
Well I want to put in for a compassionate re-assignment I guess. I don't really know anything about it and have never tried to do something like this before. I found the DA form 3739 online, and I can get any documentation needed to support it. What all can I do while I'm here in Korea? And do I have a good reason to want a re-assignment? I feel I do, and I'll do anything I can to take care of my son. Thanks for listening.
