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.

I am a 2LT serving in Korea. My father passed away a month

I am a 2LT serving in Korea. My father passed away a month ago and I was allowed to take emergency leave. Upon my return, I was not in the right mindset. I was prescribed Adderall from mental health but took way to much one weekend resulting in a trip to the hospital. A few weeks later I made the poor decision to drink during duty. After being enrolled in ASAP, I had a relapse and drank again and found by command. My priority is to take care of this drinking problem and am taking all steps possible to do so. Being chaptered out is not ideal but I am ok with it considering I have options outside of the military. My question is what type of chapter is likely and the type of discharge.

, I'm Kristen O'Brien and I'm currently in HMDA school for

Hi, I'm Kristen O'Brien and I'm currently in HMDA school for the navy at fort Sam Huston in San antonio Texas. I've been seen at a medical place in base for therapy and was given a PTSD diagnosis. I went in order to seek help getting out and that's what I got and got put in for a MEB.... I do not want to do a MEB, I don't want anything, I just want to go home. That's all I want. I was raped and have been trying to get help to get out and go home and no one is helping me and a MEB is not what is in my best interest, because that's what is going to keep me here for 6-12 months. What's in my best interest is to go home. That's all I want, I don't want any benefits or compensation or anything. I really feel like no one in my command cares or wants to help me. I just want to go home, I'm only 19 and this has been a horrible experience for me.
