What happens when you're dropped from airborne school, and become a hold over? Was a 37F, but required airborne. I believe I'll have to be reclassed? How long will I be stuck at Ft. Benning? Who do I need to talk to? Any info is useful, and much appreciated!

Fort Benning MPD will find a new MOS for you to reclass into. You'll be there until your new class starts, whenever that is. They'll usually give you a few to choose from

I am in a similar situation. I got injured in the 37F pipeline and instead of rehabilitation I chose to be useful somewhere else and accepted the re-class to a 92R.

I know two people that were dropped from Airborne when I attended last January. One become a 92F the other a 94H. I would look at your contract, but I am near certain it is a needs of the army re-class. Someone I know here at Bragg, who this time fell out of SFAS, chose instead to inquire with the Old Guard and is going to Fort Myer soon. I include this so as to impart the impression that there are pathways out of seemingly hopeless situations.

Don't take any of it too hard. If you really want it, keep persistent, aggressive, and uncompromising.

The difference between a 37F IET and an 18X IET is that the 18X is already MOS qualified as an 11B. That doesn't stop the Army from reclassing them after failing. All 37F IET and 18X have a strong chance of being reclassed if they fail anywhere in the pipeline. This is why it's better to join the Army as an MOS you like and then try out for selection later.

You can't talk to much of anyone. Service will decide what MOS you going to be, and sent to train in it-when they are ready.
