My knees have been messed up for awhile and I may be getting taken off jump status. What all does that entail? I’m guessing my wings will be taken but will I also move to a leg unit?

Just a word of precaution because you are no longer jumping, though the odds are you will be on a detail for the jump either supporting the jump prior or cleaning up after.

You were injured and did nothing to cause your removal from jump status as stated below. There are a huge number of soldiers that attend airborne school and never serve a day in an airborne unit yet wear wings. Unless you have permanent orders revoking them, you will keep and are authorized to wear your jump wings. Below is the Reg that addresses this. I hope this helps!

Cut and pasted from AR 600-8-221–31.

Revocation of badges, Ranger Tab, Special Forces Tab, and Sapper Tab a. Commanders authorized to award combat and special skill badges are authorized to revoke such awards. An award, once revoked, will not be reinstated except by USAHRC, AHRC–PDO–PA, Alexandria, VA 22332–0471, when fully justified. When desirable, the awarding authority may refer the revocation request to USAHRC, AHRC–PDO–PA, Alexandria, VA 22332–0471, for appropriate action. b. Revocation of awards of badges will be announced in permanent orders, except that revocations which are automatically effected, as prescribed in this regulation, need not be announced in orders; see paragraphs c(1) through(9), below. c. Award of badges may be revoked under any of the following conditions: (1) An award of any combat and special skill badge will be automatically revoked on dismissal, dishonorable discharge, or conviction by courts-martial for desertion in wartime. Wartime is defined in the glossary. (2) Parachutist Badge. Any Parachutist badge may be revoked when the awardee— (a) Is punished under the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ) for refusal to participate in a parachute jump. (b) Initiates action which results in termination of airborne status or withdrawal of any Career Management Field (CMF) 18 military occupational specialty (MOS), 180A or specialty skill identifier (SSI) 18A before he or she completes 36 cumulative months of airborne duty. Any parachutist badge with bronze star for a combat jump will be retained regardless of time on airborne status. Any parachutist badge will be retained if the Soldier is unable to complete 36 cumulative months of airborne duty through no fault of his or her own, for example, injury or reassignment under favorable conditions.

You need to serve 36 months on jump status in order to keep your wings, however I believe the exception is when you're taking off by a permanent profile for medical reasons.
You will stay at your unit until the unit is able to move you, until your branch manager moves you once you have 36 months on station, or once you reenlist to move.
Commanders in the 82nd like to move non Airborne Personnel out over to different units, but it doesn't always happen as fast as they hope, or even at all sometimes.

I spit it from memory based off of the guidance issued by 18th Airborne Corps, but thank you for confirming that I was correct.

No worries! That's my pet peeve, too! It drives me crazy to see people give incorrect advice to young Soldiers. We're NCOs and we should be the fountain of truth for these Soldiers, not a rumor mill. Thank you for the reference, I had completely forgotten where it was written.

its easy to make mistakes , but we as NCOs own them once we say them ... and yes huge pet peeve so i kinda jumped the gun. only saw part of what you wrote.. so i own that ... i wish seniors would be honest and own their mistakes more. we owe the Soldiers the right info and unfortunately most cant even show their Soldiers in black and white...just what they think or have heard .. drives me nuts
