This week I emailed my branch manager asking to be attached to an Afghanistan rotation for which I knew there was a vacancy that I could fill, and was with a unit on my installation. 24 hours later I received an email confirmation of a reservation for recruiting school.
I'm a 4 year slick sleeve. I have asked 6 times to be sent to Afghanistan, and each time my request has been ignored or declined by my chain or by branch. Now I have been given a 3 year recruiting assignment, and this feels like a fuck-fuck game.
With that in mind, I'm looking for a circumstance that would preclude me from going. My NCOIC and OIC are already aggressively trying to get my orders deferred (they want me here for their own reasons, and are ok with me getting attached to a deployment), though I've heard recruiting orders are impossible to get deleted without a DCSS. I do not want to create a circumstance that would severely impact my promotion opportunities or revoke my TS security clearance, which makes this tricky.
Thus far I've found the following:
Offensive tattoo on a visible location. I have no tattoos, so this could blow up in my face.
Mental eval. Perhaps if I express my anger and disdain about being repeatedly refused an opportunity to deploy to combat, I could be precluded without a security clearance suspension.
Financial. This one's no good, as it would almost certainly result in a clearance suspension or revocation.
PT failure. This could be seen as intentional, as I've been scoring 250-290 for about 3 years.
Academic. Does recruiting school do 1059's now? I've heard both ways.
Please understand that I'm not trying to sham. On another note, does anyone know how to become an individual augmentee without the BM's assistance? I will not be dealing with him any more.
