Original Post
SFC Wright,
I am currently station in Germany, with a DEROS of July 2013. My commander is signing off on my reenlistment (BEAR) tomorrow morning. Do you know of the school dates for next year yet? Just wondering if I will have to submit a curtailment in order to make the school dates. From my understanding talking to the our unit medics, will the assignments basically be hospitals?
Is the Promotable status waiverable? I am an SPC with 2 years TIG and would like to reclass to 68V. However, since I told my unit that I would like to re-class, they are not likely to want to send me to a promotion board just so I can leave the unit.
SFC Wright,

I am a SPC promotable and I meet all qualifications for 68V and submitted my packet to my retention NCO for the BEARS program. He said I was good to go and is waiting on a training seat. Is there anything I need to do to reserve or get a seat. He said there were no seats available now, when does the next class start or open up and how can I reserve a seat?
