I was initially contracted through an SMP scholarship with the Guard. I attended the one and only instance of RSP drill before my BCT ship date. Between that time and said ship date —which was scheduled for Jan. 4— I was evicted from my home, had my phone account suspended, and was forced to [temporarily] relocate. I was able to build back up my finances and move back close to the area in which I was recruited, but did not notify any Guard representatives for a few weeks following my BCT ship date.
I was able to get word to my recruiter within a few weeks of my missed ship date, but was unable to get word to my RSP coordinator —I had lost his information when my phone account was closed— within the same time period.
Earlier today, my recruiter told me to call my RSP instructor and so I did. He subsequently informed me that he had submitted 3 discharge forms (he was unsure as to whether or not mine was included, though he was inclined to think so, due to the fact that I had not notified him of my situation in sufficient time). He told me to go ahead and call him tomorrow morning, so that he would have an opportunity to review my paperwork (in order to see if he had in fact submitted my discharge papers). He did not specify if anything could be done to rectify the situation.
Does anyone know if this situation can be mended? I am currently at a new residence and have not received any notification of discharge. However, if the paperwork was submitted on the part of my RSP instructor, does this mean that I am out of the Guard for good? If so, what sort of discharge is this? What does this mean in terms of my status as a cadet or potential recruit for other branches?
I would very much appreciate any information I could get on these questions.
Thanks in advance.
