I'm in the army and currently AWOL unfortunately. I want to

Hey I'm in the army and currently AWOL unfortunately. I want to know if it's possible for my commander to still send me to Leavenworth or give me dishonorable discharge for going AWOL till I'm dropped from the rolls of the army and can go to PCF in Fort Sill and get processed out. I've been in contact with some people still in barracks and they have told me that was what their plan was to do to me and also they have made all soldiers in my platoon right sworn statements. Some background info I left after I had been recycled in AIT at Fort Sill

I am in the army national guard and I have NOT been to basic

I am in the army national guard and I have NOT been to basic training yet. I told my Sgts and commander way before that I wanted to be discharged and because it was heavily stressing me out and that it was making my mental health worse. They refused to tell me about the "within 45 days of shippment you can't discharge" until it was the 42 day, after I continuously asked them.I did not show up for drill and the commander has been calling threatening to put a warrant for my arrest. I'm really scared and don't know what to do, I have talked to many people about it who are semi knowledgable and every answer involves them not doing anything because I haven't been to basic training, but I'm not so sure anymore. I don't want to be in the military's and I don't want to go to jail. When I told them about it making my mental illnesses worse, they continued to ignore me and dismiss it.

I'm a member of the Indiana Army National Guard with 8 years

I'm a member of the Indiana Army National Guard with 8 years service. I moved to Michigan 3 years ago with the intention of transferring right when I moved. My unit kept delaying the transfer over and over again for no real reason. To take Friday before and Monday after drill off work to drive down to sit on a drill floor and do absolutely nothing is not only a drain on my finances, but a huge inconvenience to my employer, as I'm one of 6 people who work there and it's hard to delay work until I get back to do my certain job.Now here is my question. I know if I go AWOL, Indiana will put out a traffic warrant for me. I haven't ever been pulled over in my life, so I'm almost willing to bet I won't get pulled over in the next six months. How long will it take the INARNG to discharge me and close that warrant? Will Michigan proactively come search me out at my house on that Indiana warrant?

I am in the florida air national guard, I have not attended

Hello. I am in the florida air national guard, I have not attended drill since July of 2015. I was told I would get an OTH. My supervisor claims I was sent AWOL letters. I never received them but today I got 5 letters via email after I asked him what my current status was.. They stated..after the obvious that I am absent... Since I chose not to respond to the first letter (that I didn't not receive until today) that I can be recommended to the adjutant general to consider me for involuntary separation with a concurrent discharge as a reserve in the air force. OR if I responded I could be forgiven and given a demotion and/or placed into the individual readiness air force.and it says I am further ordered to appear for the next duty date next month.--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------It feels as if my supervisor needs to me sign off on these letters and acknowledge that I have them for a reason unknown to me.I have THREE questionsMy question is: What happens if I do not sign off on the papers and send them back?What happens if I DO sign off on them and send them back?I do not wish to be on individual readiness reserve and I have no intentions on attending the next drillSo what do I need to do just to get the OTH and be done with all of this?Thank you in advance.
