I have been racking my head all day trying to find a maradmin for this, and I can't seem to find exactly what I am looking for.
Short story short? Hubs was pegged for recruiting, but didn't have enough time left on his contract to fulfill the duty, so they extended his contract 4 months.
His original eas was in August, and then pushed to December. So, he went to submit reenlistment paperwork a few months back (on recruiting duty now) and he was told he can't reenlist (yet?) and that his original unit should have reenlisted him for a full contract time vs just extending him a couple months. Fairly confident he was told he had to wait until his extension starts (or maybe ends?) to submit for reenlistment.
Anyone been in a similar situation and can fill in the holes for me? or postly ppoint me in the direction of the appropriate maradmin?
I'm just worried, something will go wrong, and find out the information he was given was incorrect, and mess up his reenlistment process all together. I've heard too many horror stories similar in nature.
the reason i asked is that one of the reasons he may not be able to reinlist is his time left in. the cutoff for sgts is now 10 years and he may be able to get an extra 2 years after that to get on the board twice. below zone is still not in zone and it may take forever or never depending on his job to get in zone. my husband is almost done w/ recruiting and is infantry which is slow to pick up. he is 10 years in the fall and had to extend to the end of the year for recruiting. from what i know, he would not be allowed to reenlist unless he picks up so he can only extend his contract for a couple more years.
Yeah. I think that's basically where we are at now. Told he can reenlist 7 months past boards each time until he picks up or gets looked over, but has to wait until his extension actually starts to do anything.
