If you think he hasn’t signed it and you really want to back out, then from your team leader up to the BC/CSM should be all ears about this - him not signing or you changing your mind, this is the CDRs program so it looks bad on him if he’s not doing his job unless he just doesn’t care now if you are not bringing this up to the proper channel (not RP) and let it sit and then one day he does sign it then that’s it you definitely cannot back out ...

you also need to consider if there's any discrepancy in your contract then it might take a while to fix and that's one of the worst things that can go wrong since it has to do with your pay, bonus, ETS, etc... you don't want that kind of problem

Good question, I would speak to your career counselor, I would also ask why was a contract executed if the Commander did not check the box for and sign the form - it's been a while so I forget the form number but I do know that he needs to approve your eligibility for continued service, usually prior to a contract being executed.

SPC (Join to see) - Have you tried speaking to your Commander, utilizing the proper channels of course, regarding this? And if was Just a numbers game, then he would have signed the form and retained you, so doubtful that's the issue - could be he forgot with all on his plate

my commander is not full time, the soldier who conducted my re enlistment was the person who has authority to sign in his place. Retention never emailed it to my unit to sign. Currently it is sitting on his desk collecting dust until he remembers to process it. So I am wondering due to his laziness, does that give me a route to switch to the guard?

SPC (Join to see) - Speak to your career counselor - do not just let this sit - if there is a contract out there that just requires the signature, it would be in your best interest to get it done one way or the other, quite surprised your career counselor is not howling about this up the chain, as he cannot process the contract without it being completed, and that part is a numbers game.
