I have been trying to enlist into the Indiana National Guard since August of last year (2011). I need a waiver for RE3 (Honorable Discharge). I have an RE3 because I requested an early discharge for the good of the Army which was approved under secretarial authority. I requested the early discharge because i was offered a job with a government contractor and had to start right away. The early discharge was for release 3 months early. My recruiter has been non-responsive for the most part unless I make a complaint. If I make a complaint he works on my paperwork for a little then I dont hear from him.
I have been waiting for my security clearance to come back for over a month now so he can submit the waiver. I am completely frustraited with this process and frustraited at being at the recruiters mercy in handling my paperwork. I'm positive he sat on my waiver so long because he didnt know what to do so he did nothing until i complained. I realize he just processes the paperwork. However, like I said in the beginning, its been now 6 months and my waiver still isnt submitted. There is always one excuse or another.
How long does it take to get an answer on your security clearance?
How long does it take for the NGB RE3 waiver to get approved (or denied)?
I served on active duty for nearly 10 years and had only stellar NCOERs and PT scores. I will have my Bachelor's Degree in a matter of months now. I cannot see why the waiver would get denied but I'm afraid that the more time passes the NG will not accept waivers anylonger (if they havent stopped already).
Any suggestions on what I should do?
