Hi i have just found out i have to appear in court for one day to give evidence during my basic training. It is by no fault of my own i cant help it and im not in trouble or anything. But basically i am very worried incase i get booted out of basic for it. I need this job and i cant not pass as it would really leave me with nothing. Yes i know it sounds like a sob story etc but im sheeting me kegs here. Is it known for recruits to be allowed to appear during training? I know of people who have had sick days in basic and days off for funerals etc so i hope i could be excused. Im old and wise enough to know i may be kicked out but i would really be gutted after the nearly two years of waiting. I know a certain amount of breaking down and chatacter rebuilding goes on in basic but any reassurance would be nice. I would ask my recruiter at my AFCO but id like to know from someone there, now in the know if in any way possible does it mean the end before i even begin? Cheers, mike.
