ok ladies and gentleman out there in the forums, let me have some feedbacl on this one:
Ok, So I spoke with my recruiter SGT. Haynes 3 weeks ago at my school when he was trying to recruit people, but I am only 16 so when he asked me to take the ASVAB at the Manchester Armory in Manchester NH, I was a bit shocked and I looked at my friend and mentor PVT. shaw and asked him later if I was too young and if it was out of the ordinary to be taking it now. He said ya just a little, and left it at that. Then my friends who have already enlisted in the army active duty and the guard told me that it is not even possible to take it at 16 because they wont let me, so then I called my recruiter and he told me that they were wrong and that you can take it a a sophomore in high school, so I beleved him. Well yesterday at 5:30pm it came time to take my ASVAB and my recruiter was no where to be found and had not done any paperwork or atleast they could not find it so we re-did the paperwork and then I was off. The guy proctering the test asked my age and I told him 16 sir, and he said we can not give you the teste because you are not eligible to take the test. My other mentor SGt. Valente had told me that she was going to phone her boss and also phone SGT. Haynes and speak with both of them, and so she did just that. I am worried that becuase my recruiter is an E-7 and she is an E-6 that he will loose his job over this, and I would really feel bad after that if he does, but my dilema is this: I feel like it is my fault. Is it? My other thing is this; If he was to admit that he made a huge mistake would he still loose his job over this?
let me know what you think
thanks kindly and HOOAH
