So my sister had foot problems, she almost got planters Fasciitis:
Plantar Fasciitis — plantar Fasciitis is the most common condition of heel pain. This condition occurs when the long fibrous plantar fascia ligament along the bottom of the foot develops tears in the tissue resulting in pain and inflammation. The pain of plantar fasciitis is usually located close to where the fascia attaches to the calcaneous, also known as the heel bone. The conditions is often mispelled as: plantar fascitis, plantar fasciatis, planters fasciitis, plantar faciatis, and plantar faciaitis. Correctly pronounced it is "plantar fash-eee-eye-tiss".Quote has been trimmed
Plantar fasciitis causes the inflammation of the plantar fascia ligament which runs along the bottom of the foot. The plantar fascia ligament is made of fibrous bands of tissue and runs between the heel bone and your toes and stretches with every step. Inflammation develops when tears occur in the tissue.
The most common complaint from plantar fasciitis is a burning, stabbing, or aching pain in the heel of the foot. Most sufferers will be able to feel it in the morning because the fascia ligament tightens up during the night while we sleep, causing pain to diminish. However, when we climb out of bed and place pressure on the ligament, it becomes taut and pain is particularly acute. Pain usually decreases as the tissue warms up, but may easily return again after...

Now she could barely walk and had to use sneakers instead of regular combat boots. She couldn't march with her platoon and there was so much damage she has to do physical activities to keep her feet okay.
So if you assume she was sent home after just 16 days at boot camp, and we assumed under medical so she could get better and join her unit with special boots because she has 'big fat feet'. However, they decided to release; not because of her feet because as they stated "she can't handle military life".
So we wrote to Harper and O'Conner however nothing is coming of it, and they are continuing with releasing her from the military, and they now claim she owes $80 of equipment she was never issued. Finally, they want her to sign her release forms before they give her her First Aid Certificate she earned at boot camp.
So she has told them to mail the forms with her certifcate because she is not going into the unit to sign those forms and I support her all the way.
