That's looking less and less likely. Talked with the Mobile Recruiting Team for 20th this morning and found that A) It seems they may have stopped giving moral waivers of any kind. The SFC I talked with wasn't 100% sure though. B) They apparently recently had a guy come back as a Non-Select who was told he wasn't selected because he had a DUI on his record. So I'm not sure where to go at this point.I understand the jealous part CDG, but you will get there soon.
That sucks. To think of how many guys hav DUIs on their records that are serving right now makes that a tough pill to swallow. There still could be some way, and I hope you can find it. Good luck.The issue with the waiver is the level it goes to. The recruiter told me it just had to go to the Chief of Staff for that state's NG. However, the SFC I talked with this morning said that was wrong and it actually had to go to the NG Bureau to be approved. Which, according to him, is a no-go right now. So trying a different Group would seemingly make no difference.
I have considered trying CCT and Recon. I just don't know though. I've been pretty open about wanting to go SF on this board and the last thing I would want is to burn bridges because I just jumped to something else. I doubt the members of the CCT and Recon communities that are here would appreciate me choosing one of those fields because I couldn't get SF. SF is my goal, but this seems to be a situation that I can't do anything about. If they aren't giving waivers, then me fighting it won't help anything. I don't want to just give up on SF and join another branch and 3 months down the road they open waivers back up. At the same time, I don't want to just sit around waiting and end up never doing anything. I'm only 27, so I have a little time, but I still don't want to spend the next 2-3 years working a job that barely pays the bills, going to school, and not getting any closer to what I want. My own poor judgment put me in this situation, but that doesn't make it any easier to hear "No". I'm very frustrated right now.On a serious note, I'm really sorry to hear about the setback. What other options have you considered to this point, if any?
Well, they would subtract my 4 years of service from my age so I'm good there. The AF is closed to PS until October at the earliest. Not sure about the Air Guard. I also don't know what the USMC is doing as far as PS right now. I'm going to look into both next week and try to get an idea of if I even have any options open right now besides waiting.Enlistment age for USAF is 27, USMC is 28.
I understand the frustration, my friend. If you ever need to vent, I'm just a PM away.
