Hello everyone, What is the likely outcome if an individual has been AWOL for 5 years and suddenly decides to speak with someone at the unit, to try and sort out the situation? I presume a discharge would likely follow, however, would this automatically bar him from re-enlisting with a TA unit? I know this sounds f....d up!!! but, i buggered off from the unit only after a few weeks after joining them from phase II training, basically cause i was finding life in the barracks boring. I was 25 on joining the unit and did explain to an officer about my concerns, but did not feel as though they were not listening......so i left. I have spent the last 5 years at university, so i've not exactly spent the time being doing nowt, and now that i've finished uni, i would like to sort out my AWOL issue with the army, and hopefully join a TA unit. I know this is a weird situation, but have always thought about going back and sorting things out, but after getting into uni, did not want to screw that up as well. Now that i've finished my degree, i'm wandering if i try an speak to someone at the unit (e.g. adjutant or CO, etc), and tell them that i would like to join the TA, something can be done? Any advice on this issue would be really appreciated, Cheers.
