Livin' On the Right Side of the River From Pags!
Not always...when I was 18 months out from a solid twenty my orders dried up entirely. I ended up having to do the long wait which...because of my advanced age...wasn't that long. If money gets tight the Air Guard and Army Guard will gladly M-Day your ass to slow things down.Blows my mind that there seems to be such an interservice mentality difference here. Seems the Army and AF are like "sanctuary, schmanktuary, you earn it and it's yours." Whereas the Navy is basically "fuck you, we're going to personally track your ass if you get close and deny you orders . . . even if you could be doing good things for the Navy. Fat chance ever getting an active pension, you dirty SELRES."
