Problems with dealing with QM Branch

Anyone know what I have to do to get through to the Branch Personnel so they will do their Jobs?

I had to File a Congressional Last year to try to get into another unit in Germany because they kept telling me that I wasn't needed in Germany anymore. It was Denied, So I winded up re-enlisting to go to Ft Carson. Now I am in Iraq, and I re-enlisted to go back to Germany. I am on orders to report to Katterbach, Germany in Feb 2010. I have a Letter of Acceptance to go to Kaiserslautern, Germany, but Branch will not ackowledge it, saying they cannot change what I re-enlisted for. I told them that I re-enlisted for Europe, and not Necessarily Katterbach, and they tell me that they are sorry and cannot change a thing to my assignment. Anybody out there that can help in any way?

At least you got them to talk to you. I'm 40 days from leaving Korea, no orders, no assigment and because of the holidays....no one answering phones or emails.

This was right before the Holidays, when one of them was around. The re-enlistment was for Europe, and not Specifically Katterbach/Ansbach. They put me on orders for a different unit in the same town I PCS'd from in 2008. I wanted to go to Kaiserslautern back to ADA with the 357th AMDD, which is what I have a Letter of Acceptance for from the Brigade CSM. I moved my old unit to K-Town, which is now part of the 357th AMDD.

if you e-mail your branch manager, they have 5 business days to respond. If at that time they do not (give them an extra day or two ya know)
they all have a branch CSM who they work for.
Help them help you. They have a difficult job.

NCO's should be using them. They are there to get you assignments to help you succeed in your career.

BLUF- don't call them when you're 60-90 days out.. they will tell you to pound sand.
I'd suggest when you're a year out from DEROS, call them with a top 3 follow on assignments that you would like to go to. 6 months out, call again.. seeing what's opened. It's not always going to work in your favor. But if it comes down to Ft. A OR Ft. B, atleast YOU had a say in where you're going to.

Good luck!

I talk to my Branch Manager all the time. Reenlistment, they cant do nothing about that. That is your Career Counselor. They have a hectic job just like some of us, dont think for 1 second they are just sitting behind a desk not accepting your calls or emails. So be a little patient, try the civilians maybe.

SGT Corter you sound like you are screwed. Instead of re-enlisting for duty assignment.....re-enlist for Option 3 to get the hell out of the Quartermaster Corps. With few exceptions, the whole QM corps are the lowest ASVAB scores and most moral issue soldiers in the Army. I am sure someone will get mad but it is what it is, and it is NOT opinion but fact.

OK. I understand the lowest ASVAB scores but what do you mean exactly by moral issue soldier?

I don't think anyone's got mad because they don't exactly know what you mean.
