I have decided that the next logical step in my career is to do a contract of recruiting. We have some family issues going on back home and are about to have a third baby so being closer to home makes the most sense right now. I just passed a board and am waiting on a BLC slot. I know I can get a waiver for not having 1 year of being an E5, so how soon after getting my 5 can I start the process of transferring to recruiting? My wife is due in early July and we are hoping to be settled in our new home before the baby comes.

The timeline for you pinning on Sgt, dropping a package, approval, school and assignment will take the better part of a year. I don't see you making that happen before June or July. Even if you were currently a Sgt already that wouldn't be a guarantee. I would also come to terms wit the fact that even if you go on Recruiting as a volunteer you may not end up "back home". You could be sent anywhere depending on the needs of the Job. Good Luck

You know you aren't guaranteed to be closer to home right? You may end up even further away.
