I'm going to try to make this as short as i can. Basically, I want to separate as fast as possible while still maintaining my g.i bill. I've been in three years, I have three left. My job is Vehicle maintenance. I'm attached to a combat com unit. I've received 5's on all my EPR's. I've recently applied for VSIP (voluntary separation incentive program). However our chief said no one is getting out of our unit. At the very least I would like to palace chase back home, however deploying is not something i want to do again but I'd be willing to compensate. I have an appointment with the 1st shirt to talk about separation within the near future. I have many reasons to get out however none of them are AF approved. Not to put my business out there but here are a few: 1. My grandma whom I was very close to/grew up with has been diagnosed with Dementia and her time is soon to come. (this does not qualify for hardship because my release would not cure her). 2. Very eager to become a full time college student and get started on what I actually want to do in life, rather than waiting around for 3 more years. (i'm aware i can take classes using my TA, but i'm not interested in that.) 3. Fiance lives back home. I'm aware the AF is trying to downsize, so why would you keep somebody in who truly does not want to be in? Is there anything else I can do to get out while maintaining my G.I. bill. Thank you for your time Please help.
