    Can I make another case with the BCNR despite my discharge already upgraded?

    Even though my re4 code and JFV got changed to a RE3G and JFF I’m still having issues finding a recruiter whose willing to help me re-enlist. The fact that I need a waiver is scaring a lot of people away. Also for some weird reason the Air Force reserves is telling me that my re code is non...

    How long does it take to get a new revised DD214?

    4 days ago I got the letter from the BCNR stating that they changed my re4 code to an re3g. Unfortunately, the recruiter doesn’t care or want the letter. He wants my new dd214 showing that it got changed. How long does it take to get that new dd214? The decision was officially made on May 1st.

    14 months and counting with the BCNR......

    So it’s been 14 months now and I’m getting fed up with this. I feel like this gonna be one of those over 18 month cases. Especially with this virus outbreak happening. They still won’t give me an update on my case. I just don’t know what to do anymore.

    I finally got my congressional inquiry sent to the BCNR.

    So after a delay due to this coronavirus I got my congressional sent to find out where my case is. I don’t get why I just can’t get a straight forward answer to my emails but that’s how this clock ticks. Why have an email and a phone number if you’re not gonna respond to it?

    Adjustment Disorder w/ Honorable discharge and RE-4 code.

    I'm being separated from the Navy next week due to acute Adjustment Disorder. I'm receiving an Honorable Discharge and have already been approved for my GI Bill.

    Involuntary Separation (APFT failure 2x) and VA rating

    This hasn't happened yet but I was looking into for information. This is what I am tracking: Soldier gets out on APFT failure (ch 13). Gets honorable. Gets severance pay. If Soldier gets disability from VA the SM must pay back severance pay. Does this seem accurate? Thanks!

    Can you only request a VARR during IDES?

    Can you only request a VARR during IDES or can you request a VARR after you're discharged? If you can only request a VARR during IDES, is there a way to appeal your rating after you're out? I haven't gotten my ratings back yet. Just wondering.
