I'm having trouble getting answers for my particular situation. I'm a prior enlisted national guard solder (11 years) then I went through OCS and graduated in 2011. In January of this year my business went under and as a result I also lost my home. I was forced to move out of state to live with family while I get my life back on track. The problem I'm having is that my guard unit is demanding that I come back and drill with them each month. Its a 1700 mile trip one way and if I fly I lose double what I would make at drill. I told them that I have no problem transfering to the national guard in this state but they are claiming that I have to go back and drill with them while they work on setting up the transfer. This process to my knowledge can take quite a long time. They are threatening to AWOL me out if I don't return. At this point I'm stuck. I'm asking what options are available to me. Can I just resign being as I'm an officer and just walk away from the guard but still maintain my VA benefits? Is there some waiver I can request? Any information would be helpful. Thanks.
