My husband is currently in BCT at Fort Benning with a graduation date of December 5th. He is scheduled to start OCS the week after BCT graduation. He is currently in the hospital due to an infection in his arm. He wanted me to post a question on this forum as he is trying to find out what options he has if any for OCS. He is told that his battalion does not recycle soldiers, so assuming that he is able to graduate from BCT we're thinking that he will not be physically able to make it through OCS right away. Is there any way to apply to have his orders changed until after the Christmas Break so his body can have a chance to recover? Is it possible to get orders changed from going to OCS and go back to an enlisted training? If he does have to OCS right after BCT and the infection comes back, or he can't meet the physical requirements due to a weakened physical state from just having overcome a serious infection, what happens? Does he get chaptered out of the National Guard, or does he just change to an enlisted MOS? He earned a bachelor's degree in public administration from Northern Arizona University in Spring of 2013. He would however like to go back to college as soon as his National Guard training is done to get an engineering degree. He is looking at attending West Virginia University. Would that offer any commissioning possibilities? He is in contact with his recruiter about this since he is in the hospital and has access to a phone. Any advice, however, for his consideration would be appreciated! Thanks in advance.
