Awol from marine reserves for 10 years
I started college the same day I came back from MOS training. I had a track / cross country scholarship which required that I attend meets on the weekends. I had to miss drills and but also missed meets trying to satisfy my coach and the marines.
In the end I lost my scholarship and got in trouble with my unit. After loosing my scholarship that snowballed into a whole mess of personal family issues. I even attempted to make up some drills missed. I realized after my brief experience with the reserves that it was not for me. I did enjoy the military while I was on active status so I requested active duty and to be properly trained. I even had the air force recruiter at the time help me change branches so I can receive the training I wanted.
After I found out I lost my scholarship and could not afford the school I went to drill and found out my name was not on the roster. I was not even scheduled for AT. After my request was denied for active duty I stopped going to drill. I got an internship and started to go to another school.
I tried taking on too much when I was not ready and I ultimately failed. I want to know what are my options. Itís been nearly 10 years and this issue has always been in the back of my mind.
