Yes, I did receive an honorable discharge from active duty. Yea, I do have full healthcare benefits, as well as my post 911 gi bill. I want to stay in the national guard, but it seems as if I'm being involuntarily pushed out. I feel this would be an unacceptable waste of taxpayer dollars if I'm discharged. Will I lose any of my benefits if I'm discharged? What can I do? New york has claimed to not have any slots. So my platoon sergeant from wa is pushing me out!
I'm grateful for this, however, I'm still having trouble understanding what this discharge means. I'm obligated to serve until march 2015, and this discharge will end my military career early, for a failure to ist. the ist is failure to interstate transfer. No counselings or non judicial punishments have been imposed on me. The wa state ist coordinator simply stated the process request was for a failure to ist, plain and simple. For me, this is about finishing my career the right way, and I feel this isn't right.
Sorry, I meant to clarify I'm attempting to transfer to the state of new york. The ny state coordinator informed me of no slots being available in new york, to which my platoon sergeant submitted the failure to ist discharge. Recruiters have also informed me of not being able to slot me a job, due to soldiers returning from mobilization having mos priority.
