NG question: Be a man, and not a kid, and call your unit. Do your time like you are supposed to. Take your lumps and move on. This is not an end all to everything. SFC Livingston is spot on. No Commander is going to let you go. You can be dumba$$ and just go about failing everything. But why? Explain why you deserve to be discharged? Explain why you can't fill your obligation? Explain to your next employer why you were a fuktard, and could not show for one weekend a month? Explain to me, your future potential boss, why I should hire you? This will follow you for years to come, so think long and hard about the choice you make today, because it will haunt you for decades.

You better read this post close PFC Gwan Bul for it speaks the truth about how this will follow you through life. Quitting is the cowards way out. You signed the contract, live up to it with dignity and pride. In the end you will agree you are glad you did.

PFC (Join to see) - And how it that the NG's problem. Hell kid, there are just about every religion in the world in the service now. CO, hell fire we have had them in the service since it began- SGT York, the medic who saved tons of wounded in the pacific during WWII, Hacksaw Ridge, etc.

PFC (Join to see) - You changed religions, and didn't notify your unit, didn't see if you could do an alternate day, didn't try to make up your drill? Me personally, I don't care what your religious convictions are. I notice you didn't open with that, did some shithouse lawyer give you that advice and you want to see how far it will fly? Bottom line Soldier, you are screwing yourself. Go tell the 1SG you want to be the Chaplains Asst, if there is an opening. I don't know of two many religions that tell you drop what you are doing and "f" those guys. You may believe this is the wrong path for you. I get that, but you owe your unit the decency to show up and go through the correct channels of doing things. If you can't do that, you are in for a very long hard life regardless of your beliefs.

If you want out...and willingly stated you PLANNED ON NOT GOING......why do you care if you get nailed with AWOL? Play stupid games, win stupid prizes. I explained the process to you in your last post about this.....before it was removed because you are posting the same questions under two different profiles.....stating you had no intention of going to BTA and that you want out. Now you're worried about what will happen? And you can ask your Commander to discharge you....but chances are they will say no. And, even if they say yes, it can take MONTHS for a Chapter packet to run its course. And guess what, during that Chapter process....you will still be expected to show up to BTA.

SGT Christopher Hayden - "Not anymore?" Are you referring to the stupidity of issues like, "stress cards," and "sensitivity?" LOL

People like you piss me off. I’m gonna be flat out. Here i am trying to get back. Hurdle after hurdle.
To do it all again,
And you quit as a PFC????
It’s 2 days a month.......what is so hard about this for you? I pray that if you’re under 21 you think about this a little more and just take the negative mark on the file. Don’t make this worse than it needs to be.

From what I’ve heard, they deserve it for traitors and sexual assault violators. Peace time makes it hard for them to give something that “won’t ruin lives”CPT (Join to see)

I also don’t get how someone could take the oath, go through BCT and sometimes even AIT in the guard or reserves and the just decide “nah I’m not doing this”.

I know when i re enlisted i ended up backing out of DEP cause NG would be my better option. But i did before i took the oath again. I felt like that atleast wasn’t being two faced. It’s bit me in the ass but atleast I’m not making a mistake now. But i know this PFC’s situation happens more often than not CPT (Join to see)

CPT (Join to see) - They happen, but less so in the Guard due to funding and manning needs primarily. The requirement for a dishonorable characterization of service is that a court-martial be conducted. For administrative separations the worst you face is an OTH which is common for people who accrue UA's (AWOL).
