RETIREMENT CALL OF DUTY SHARE/READ OF THE DAY

I was looking at my DD 214 Member Copy 1 and 4. It states in section 18 (remarks)," SUBJECT TO ACTIVE DUTY RECALL BY THE SECRETARY OF THE ARMY". I wonder why it says that. Need some insight RP nation. I guess that saying on the Army bumper sticker, "Retired but still serving is serving" is so true. Well for me I would put back on my uniform and grab my weapon and lead the charge.

Roger that!, I appreciate all service.

If the situation were bad enough for them to recall my lard-ass, I sure would.

71 and non-combat, but I still know how to shoot, and I can still remember my job I had back then. In whatever capacity they could use me, I'd be there and giving it my all. AND OH so proud to be back!

MSgt Dennis Dudley - I am 59 years old. I to the best of knowledge have been released from my oath to defend this country. Besides I told them when I retired, "If you need me, call me." Until I can no longer shoot straight. I still hit what I aim at.

I can answer that question to a point....
I was retired. I had 11 and a half years active duty with a tour in Vietnam in 1969-70. I retired around 1994 with about 22 years credit and at the rank of SFC. Then 9/11 happened. I was unable to do anything at the time due to situation I was in caring for my elderly father. In 2004 he passed away and shortly after that I visited my NG recruiter where my old unit was located. I was 55 at the time and the recruiter had a chuckle. He said if I passed the physical he would push my paperwork through. I passed with flying colors and good to his word, a month later I had been accepted and was back in uniform. I then set about looking for a unit going to Iraq. I finally found one. I telephoned the new commander of the unit and talked to him personally. A few weeks later I received a letter transferring me to his unit. Shortly after that we began forming (this was a new unit with all new people) and we started the processing in for active duty. When that was completed we combined our 2-week summer training with our pre-deployment training. After nearly 4 months of training, we got on a plane and headed for Iraq. That was in 2006 ... I turned 57 a few days after we started our training.

So yes I would serve, but I didn't need to be asked.

I would go willingly if they recalled me. I assume because of the time that's passed I'd automatically be advanced to CSM.

Hey, go ahead and giggle, but it worked for "SSG" Bergdahl.

SFC Rick H - There are definitely women who are cut out for it and those who aren't. Mine was an Army brat, and her dad was an Infantry officer, and she remembered him being gone for several tours during Vietnam...I would imagine that weighed heavily into her thinking there. It all worked out for the best though. There have definitely been times through the years without that guaranteed check, but there have also been times (now) where they are more on par with a Major General's check.

My wife is the daughter of a North Korean Army Officer- Cpt. who decided enough was enough during the war and came across the river. She of course remembers nothing of that, but her Dad told here while she was a little girl- you need to marry a soldier. Soldiers have Honor, Integrity and Loyalty and they are very brave people. So, it seems you are correct when you say some women are not cut out for it. It took me years to be retired from the Active Army to realize how special and important my wife is as an Army wife, to have had the patience and discipline to put up with my hard-sorry attitude. In any event- each to their own!
