He was all excited and looking forward to start basic training up until 2 weeks ago. It was about the time when I told him I needed eye surgery for my cataracts. He told me he was having 2nd thoughts about the Navy and wants to quit. He gave me several reason: our government forcing vaccine mandates (he already had his covid shot), the commitment, and fear of my parents (his grandparents) die while he is away. He was in a real foul mood today. Just did not want to talk. I have to drop him off to his recruiters office tmw. Can anyone tell me if this is normal? Do most people go through this emotions before going to basic training? I really hate to see him unhappy about his decision going into the Navy.
