SPC (Join to see), have you read AR 600-8-22?

If so and you're just confused about how it reads, then provide a little more detail about your service in Korea.

If not, you should make a habit to search for the answer in publications before reaching out such a massive social network. Asking questions here without prior research and a backstory is just lazy.

Check AR 600-8-200, paragraph 2-20 and 5-4. When you're done reading, post your thoughts here so we can see how you answer your own question.

SFC, I don't understand why you would say its lazy for this soldier to ask a question on a this social network or any platform. It doesn't matter if he was being lazy or not this soldier had a legit question and wanted positive feedback and a correct answer and not to be labeled "lazy". As stated in his question he posted the regulation AR 600-8-22 meaning he reviewed so obviously he was still confused, also if he served in korea we all know its either a rotation meaning 9mo DEPLOYMENT or stationed there which is typically 1 year or 2 if the opt to AIP or bring family for Command Sponsorship. All you had to do was ask him a few questions regarding his situation and if you knew the answer then you could've provided him the information he was looking for and how to reference the details. Basically this shows me if one of your soldiers ask you a question you will just call them lazy and tell them to "figure it out". We all know as young soldiers especially E-4 and below, that there are regulations, but who knew as a E-4 exactly how to properly reference any of the ADP for information. Honestly you don't learn these things until you attend the newly named Basic Leaders Course. Give the guy a break!!

CW5 Youngs - the SFC is spot on. If a Specialist is incapable of looking in AR 600-8-22 (board question, common knowledge) and applying a little bit of common sense, or even Googling the question which has been asked and answered for decades and is EASILY found, or asking his peers, NCOs, or S1, then yes, it is an incredibly lazy question. Regurgitating the answer, instead of having the Specialist think through it with what he read and what he thinks, is the disservice.

This is an incredibly low-quality question. Honestly you are way in the wrong here. This type of lazy “gimme gimme” attitude, along with your attitude regarding a senior NCO appropriately addressing it, parallels perfectly the issues we are having in our military today.

I have no earthly idea, SPC (Join to see), but I flipped your profile pic so that you might not appear reversed!
