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

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.

My son opted to not go to basic training a few days less than

My son opted to not go to basic training a few days less than the 30 days in 2011. The recruiter told him he still had to go to airport and he took him and we met him there. My son was told he could leave with us and he was done. The recruiter left. In March 2012 my son initialed a separation form and we left the recruiters office. He started getting unexcused absence letters in the mail in 2013 and various recruiters and personnel have told him not to worry because he wasn't in the army, they looked up his records and it showed he never went to basic. Now he got separation papers and they said he was awoken and this would be on his record? He did everything the recruiter told him he had to do and now it seems he is being punished!
