Can you get out of a four year contract with the army and then sign a two year contract with the National Gaurd
Fortbragg North Ca, North Carolina
All of the army/National Gaurd web sites. Daughter has jioned the army and know claims to have new contract with the National Gaurd . Is that possible? And how does one do that
Has she reported to recruit training?
Yes she did basic and AIT. She was to report for her MOB at Fort bragg and now claims to have a new two year contract with the N.G.
What is the underlying concern?
That she is awol. Is it possible to transfer
OK, that's what I thought.If she is AWOL it will take a little while for the paper to catch up.Did you receive a letter from the Army saying "Dear "parent: we are sorry to advise you . . . .? "How long has she been back home?And no, I do not think it possible for that kind of contract conversion or change. It can be done prior to reporting to boot-camp.
No we did not receive a letter yet. She is living with her boyfriend who is in the Vermont National Guard. She says she reports one weekend a month.
Understand. How long is it since she "came home" or otherwise wasn't at Bragg?
Her last pay check was deposited into her account on Feb 27, 2009. She said she transferred at the end of Jan or begining of Feb. She says they pay her by check now instead of direct deposit. She also told me today that she has transferred from Vermont to california. Is that even possible? Or am I in denial?
Not sure, it's very odd.After 30 days AWOL a soldier is supposed to be "dropped from the rolls" of the unit and then declared a deserter.Some people do fall through the cracks if they go AWOL during the transfer period between units.You can call the Army Deserter Information Point.When have called their in the past for cases there has been a very nice lady who takes about 2 or 3 minutes and will tell me if they have a DD553 (deserter arrest warrant) on file. You can call. If they say they have a 553 that answers the question. If they say they don't have a 553 that doesn't necessarily mean there isn't one or she's not AWOL and like I said, the crack.You might call a local NG recruiter and ask the question direct.I'm not aware of such a "transfer." There are plenty of situtations for transfer the other way of course.I did find this, and it's similar to some other direct NG enlistments.
No problem.Try those contact numbers and see what you get.With that I'm going to close the question.Take care.
