  • Rejoining the Guard?

    I enlisted a few months ago as an 11B. I was injured durning OSUT and chaptered out on 5-11. I had a back problem that I never knew I had. I'm working with the VA on my recovery, my injury was deemed service related and I would like to get a waiver and get back in the military once I'm fully healed. I made it to week 12 of OSUT without missing any training. I qualified expert, passed my APFT's and was 2-3 weeks into AIT. If I can rejoin it's not going to be infantry because of my injury. Will the guard credit me with basic training and allow me to go to AIT or will I have to redo basic?

    If you chaptered out on a medical on a condition that you never knew you had weeks into your military service; I think you will have a great challenge on re-entering. Your time to re-enter is perhaps too early for a recruiter to give you his time and with the cutbacks coming down; "prior service" based on your circumstances makes your goal even more harder to achieve.

    Good luck.
