Customer Question
I am 18 and have...
I am 18 and have been in the national guard for over a year now. I have already completed basic but not AIT. Now that I've been in awhile I've decided with 100% certainly this is not what I want to do with my life. Also, I joined under false information. I was on the fence about joining and my recruiter knew that, so he told me some false information that has effected my life greatly in a negative way. What are my options to get out?

Hello,

Thank you for the information and your question. Did you sign a contract and if so, how long is your commitment for? What is the alleged false information you refer to? Are you active or drilling guard?

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

TonyApopka, FL

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.
