    OK I thought you had more smarts than that. That is strange that they are laying you off. You would think that they ask for volunteers or did they do that already?

    It's a system they came up with and are going by jobs. Mine being an Airframer (Aircraft Hydraulics and Structral repair) has no opening so they are letting everyone go until they reach a certain quota. We are allowed to finish our current contrat but no allowed to reenlist. So far everyone in the years above and below me are being let go. There's still hope but it's not high. Just a wait and see thing that none of us have any control over.
    If its Fast its Fun. If its Fun its Expensive. If its Expensive its usualy a Car or a Girl!

    You don't have the option of changing your MOS? I heard the Air Force is doing the same thing but give a option of "Blue to Green" (Air Force turning Army).

    Army is doing the same thing. They are revamping retention control points for promotions as their excuse.

    Some jobs have the option to cross rate or MOS change some don't. Just so happens my job is over populated so I'm not getting the option. It's possible I can go Army there is the blue to gree for Navy to Army but it's been closing up in recent years. It's an option to look at. Maybe I can get lucky and get Fort Campbell.

    This is the reason i did not appeal my discharge. They told me there aren't alot of job openings so they would most likely deny me. Glad your back in Tennessee mate. Enjoy it, im sure the feeling of touching down was almost surreal for you.
