I’m a Army Reservist Veteran 92y trying to re-enlist as 12P. I went to Virginia college for Electrical Technician certification but I couldn’t finish because the school shutdown due to losing accreditation. I ETS from the Army reserves in Aug 2017 after I extended 6 months to try to pass my PT test but was unsuccessful. I never received a new DD-214 I was told the Army reserves do not get this upon ETS so I do not know my RE code. Last May I was charged with a DWI I have finished my ASAP class and have paid my court fees and fines. I’m just waiting on my probation to be up in May and pay my reinstatement fee and insurance fees to get my license back. I really want to get back in the Army as an Active Soldier and complete 20 years or more and retire honorably. I talked to a recruiter and career counselor and they both told me I have to wait until probation is up to see if I’m eligible. I just need guidance on what I can do to get back in? Any ideas?

This will be a long road for you, if it is even possible. You must clear all of the hurdles associated with the private sector. Once you have completed all court directed requirements you can then visit the recruiting office heading down a path of waivers associated with your request. You then face the needs of the Army challenge, meaning you will compete for slots with civilians and prior service who do not have records nor codes to contend with. It is not impossible, but it won’t be easy, if it happens. Have a backup plan for life.

Seems like you did what you can. The recruiters will have the best up to date information. Keep it of trouble and keep up your PT.

Private First Class, I admire you. I would suggest you keep your proverbial nose clean; and try volunteering, going back to school, working: anything you can- to get back into the Army. Your goal is a great one! PFC Rayshad Washington
