Don't know who to talk with, Son wants to change contract from reserve to full time

Found out from my oldest daughter that my son wants to change his contract from reserves to full time. He is presently at his MOS 1341 at Fort Leonard Wood, MO. Yep, I'm scared. He signed up on the early entry program while a senior in high school and of course I had to sign the paper work as well. I know he has thought this decision through more then once and has a very smart head on his shoulders. This means he gives up a full time job as a mechanic when he comes home as a reserve. I know the place that his employment is promised has been holding the opening for him since September. I can't figure out what has changed his mind. Does any one know who I can talk to so I can maybe have them talk to him and make sure he has thought this out completely. I thought he was looking forward to coming home and having the job waiting for him. I don't know what has suddenly  changed his mind and so far he hasn't talked to me about it. His phone calls even stopped he just texts me once in a while. Any ideas would be appreciated
