The officer came in and said they was drugs in the room their was all 11 people in the room had their phones taken of them all drug tested
My son was told if any of the 11 people tested positively for drugs they all get discharged

Your son needs to be dealing with this himself. He can find out the regulations on discipline by asking his supervisors or at his admin office, because they will have access to the latest version, and he also needs to know any local rules on things like alcohol in accommodation during training.

Hi
Yes I know he should and I’m sure he will
but I just don’t get it they get trained for 9 months with their squadron they are like brother that would take a bullet for each other
If some of them are drinking our even taking drugs / do you really think they are going to leave the room and then grass there mates up and risk getting bullied / and destroy their mates career
But by not participating in drink and drugs
But being in the room
How can they be discharged for being innocent
After drug test come back negative
Their must be a law I wanted to know tge guidelines
Thankyou

Military law is different to civil law. Your son will have access to this. Let him fight his own battles.

If your son were to turn a blind eye to this throughout his and the others careers, and he ended up in a fire fight next to his drugged up mates, he probably will end up taking a bullet. Not for them, but because of them!

One of the things trainees are taught is the military values, which include respect and integrity, so he has to be prepared to stand by those and see others abide by them, too. And no-one wants someone who has been drinking or doing drugs then handling a weapon or driving a vehicle.

Also, he can't turn a blind eye to anything if he is then going to be in a position later of being a supervisor; you can't tell others to not do things you have indulged in.

Unfortunately he’s got to fight his own battles there’s nothing you can do for your son now, he’s in the RAF now not at home anymore
