So some specifics about my situation, I'm a former Marine and now in the Army Reserve. So now i am a specialists or something, stuck in a unit where I am told I will not be promoted because there no slots available for E-5 and spend my time just sitting around every drill weekend. I have already completed my military obligation, have not re-classed yet, all my health is good and APFT as well. The Army Reserve is just not for me and would like to full fill my original contract that i had with the IRR. Sorry if i sound whiny, but i would not like to waste 3 years of my time and the Army just showing up to drill every month and doing nothing.

If you can't get out of the contract, get a meeting with your first sergeant and battalion career counselor. Be up front with them, and see if one or both of them can get you an assignment that will be more your speed. There won't be many units in the Reserves that will compare with the Corps if any, but you can find units that actually train.
