  • Medical Question (waiver possible?)

    Hey Everyone,

    I have a question about joining the Guard after being medically discharged from the Army Reserves. My discharge took place July 2007 and was for Chronic Right Ankle pain. I never received a DD214 like I did when I was discharged from active duty (honorable). Thus, I have no idea what my RE-code would be for the Reserves, but active duty was a 1. The orders I was given from the Reserves had AR 135-178 as the discharge authority. I should also note I was discharged with 10% and given severance pay. Is it possible for me to get into the Guard? I will be completing my Bachelors in one more semester and would like to go Guard as an officer. My ankle is back to strength and I am able to run well above APFT standards for my age. The recruiter I spoke to said it should be a rather easy process and I wouldn’t have to pay back the severance. Anybody have any additional thoughts? Thanks in advance.
