Not me, but posted on behalf of a friend. WO2, 22 years etc etc, asks CO to get permission to defer resettlement - too much going on in the unit and didn't want to let the unit down by being absent. CO verbally agrees and then signs form in front of WO2. Form goes into the legendary vacuum which was the unit RAO dept never to be seen again. WO2 worked on stoicly until his last day which ended with him locking up the empty SHQ and handing the keys over to the Guard........ WO2, now a Mr, has been in Civ Div for a few months and is ready to start retraining etc. Applies to AEC to find that the forms were never forwarded. meanwhile CO and personalities have moved on. AEC set enquiries in train, but witnesses to the whole case are thin on the ground. therefore AEC resettlement Officer says, "Never Mind". You can always use your Enhanced Learning Credits............ What a way to treat a man who soldiered on non-stop until his last day and played an extremely pivotal role in his unit (holding it together during disbandment - after the officers had been posted out). What is the chance of getting this man the retraining/resettlement he deserves? How does he go about it if there is such a process? Many thanks for constructive advice.
