Was just informed that i am being discharged from the Air Force honorably. Not sure what the RE code is yet as nothing has been finalized yet. i previously had an article 15 and a UIF which expires soon as well. I am a E3

I am trying to see what options i would have to join the USMC or Army reserve as aircrew. I have an up to date flight physical as i was previously accepted into special missions aviation. I am told that just having a article 15 would mean i have no chance but i'm looking at my options.

Can anyone give me information on this?

As already stated, no one can offer even a speculation as to your ability to rejoin any service until you have an RE code ...
So while you wait on that, perhaps a better question to ask your self is..."What has changed?" No need to post here the internal response, but from reading your posts so far, I don't see you being successful in any service branch unless and until you decide to understand, accept the changes YOU NEED to make.
Honestly it does not matter what you type in a response, it only matters if you can effect the change in real time, every day after you raise your right hand again. And only you know that...if your honest with your self after reflection and consideration you have a good chance..Be that a good chance doing something not in the military service, or in the service should that be an option open to you.

Well, you don't want to join the USMC Reserves for sure. You would have to go to boot camp, MOS school, and probably lose rank. Air Guard is your best bet.

And I know you might not want this, however, the state defense forces (SDF) could merely be a way to show you're serious, if you did time with one, apart from the whole ANG route. Further, USAFR also had a program for drilling with Civil Air Patrol (CAP), I know, as I seriously asked about itwhile I'd been Inactive Reserve, before my total perm disability...if you want to convince them you're serious, help myself and others here help you, by giving us more, OK? If college thus far, actual course titles, grades, GPA, the RE code, that's up to you, however, here's what I've observed, OK? When I was Army ROTC, I nearly didn't get into USAF OTS, I had to appeal a denial at first, I didn't exactly impress the Army ROTC faculty, I had to write a letter, I was given a chance, the officer program recruiters for USAF let me do that. I got in, I nearly flunked out of USAF OTS, I had to be recycled and go through a second time, I also picked the wrong AFSC, and wound up on the line sidez not the clinical side compounding my woesz I needed a long, long time to even remotely learn how to function in the role. After I'd gotten out, if I'd known about USPHS, I'd have done it, I don't know if I'd have !et !y wife, however, I'd have done it, I just didn't know it existed, honest. Now, the reason I tell you that story is this, OK? Everyone, everyone who goes in generally has some tale of woex God knows, I had mine, honest...that being said, if you straighten up and fly right, Uncle Sam will generally give just about anybody a second chance, third chances and up are obv harder, however second chsmcesz as long as what happened with you wasn't necessarily horrendousz which, given that you got your honorable, it clearly wasn't, evepidentpy, means you might, emphasize, might, have a chance, however, if you really want it, you're gonna have to seriously show them, which is why, having been around just about every single bureaucratic block this planet can offer, I assure you, if you relate more, I honestly might be able to suggest more, OK? If you want to make lemonade out of lemons, only you can squeeze them, OK? How much sugar you add to make the lemonade palatavle depends on how much work you do in the process, OK? I'm here if you'd care to chat...I honestly think you might have a halfway realistic chance, Ogd knows I was no prise many times, so, learn from what I can give you, and I'll try to suggest stuff to help you, so far as I possibly can, I just need to know more to try to do so halfway effectivelyz, OK? I'm Jere anytime you'd want to chat further, OK?
