I just had the company commander of my recruiting station sign my memo to move forward with my waiver. He is sending it up to battalion next week and I will receive my battalion review. I was told once it gets to that point it could take 1 hour to 2/3weeks to make it from battalion to brigade to USAREC. From my general understanding the company and battalion commander are on the same page and are pushing for a wrongful discharge and to allow me back in and serve. I get the whole it’s a privilege not a right to serve. See my profile for the details. I’ve explained my spot previously. My question is, is that true? My second question is I’ve been out for 5 years was told I would keep my grade but would have to go probably go through full blown basic training again. Any truth to that. Third question, was told based off prior service rules when the time comes - if my MOs is still open for PS that I may not have to go through AIT. Truth behind this? Am I getting smoke blow up my ass?

Trust your recruiters with the process; they are subject matter experts. I am prior service and currently serving in USAREC. I was a SSG when I got out and had to come back as a SPC, attend WTC (a shortened version of BCT), and retrain into a new MOS. My process started in October 2008, I finally enlisted in May 2009, and shipped to WTC in June 2009. I am currently a SFC and work for one of USAREC's BDEs as an Operations NCO. Again, trust the process, be patient, and take whatever they offer. As a prior service you will be limited to job options; you had your chance during your first go around. when I came back in I was 36 years old and all that was available was 11B; I took it and later reclassed once I WAS BACK ON ACTIVE DUTY. Hope this helps...

I would be surprised if you didn't have to do some kind of Basic (whether it's the full thing or just a "refresher") absolutely blown away if you didn't have to do AIT. Alot can change in five years, including the number of things you forget/get out of the habit of doing.

That’s what I was thinking when I was told that. But I wouldn’t be too surprised if I didn’t have to because let’s be real, it is the army. I was told that the PSBCT was null and void now. I saw that any army and marine combat MOS wouldn’t have to do basic period. I’m just not sure about the gap in services that’s my only worry. And to know what he average turn around is for waivers right now. I was told from the day it gets submitted to battalion and the commander reviews it once he signs off the memo it takes 2-3 weeks for USAREC to review and either accept or deny waivers, depends on work load
