I am just about to enter my last twelve months of service, and my unit is preparing to deploy on ops. I have attended my CTW and have my resettlement plan pretty much sorted. Now here comes the crunch point: I have been told I will deploy with my unit, thats not such a problem, but it will affect my resettlement plans. I have not been told how long I will deploy for, and I have been granted my last 6 months of service back in the UK( Mar/Apr 09) On the application for my last 6 months of service it states I will have completed all resettlement activities prior to my move back. If I deploy I will have no time to complete my resttlement, which is a major concern. I have been told that soldiers in their last 12 months of service, approaching retirement should not deploy. I have not seen the Mounting Instruction. Dont know if there is any true to this. My resettlement has been put on hold, because my unit has always been busy doing something else. And as a result this has involved me focussing on work and not on my future. Any advice is welcome.
