I want to leave
because I feel that I have been lied to since day one and all through basic training and AIT. I enlisted as an E-4 because I have a bachelors degree. My recruiter
LIED to me saying that I could not go officer
due to my security clearance. I ended up enlisting as a 12W (Carpentry and Masonry Specialist). I only enlisted because I was also told by my recruiter and throughout basic and AIT that there were many ways of becoming an officer and once enlisted it is just a matter of months before I can become an officer. Furthermore, I enlisted in Fort Dix, NJ which is almost two hours away from my home. I only did so because again I was lied to and told that they were obligated to transfer me to a unit near my home and they have not done so thus far. I was told that I was entitled to a bonus
, which appears on my MOS slot reservation but not on my contract. I have not received it.
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: So to break it down, I am unhappy about every aspect of my military career right now. I am not happy with my unit due to the arduous travel time, I am unhappy with my pay seeing that I should have earned a bonus, and, most importantly, I am unhappy with my MOS.
