Waiver for Reenlistment Process Questions - RE3 JFV - Honorable Discharge - Adjustment Disorder w/ Depressed Mood


Registered Member
Hello everyone,

I will try to keep this as simple as possible. I was discharged from the Army with an RE Code 3, Separation Code JFV, and an Honorable Discharge back in January, 2012. Adjustment disorder with depressed mood.

I have finally found an Air National Guard recruiter that actually wanted to help me with the waiver process. We've been working on this for 8 months now and my packet has gone through her chain of command and all the way up to the National Guard Bureau and back to her. She has submitted my packet to MEPS and I have three letters of recommendation as well as a statement from myself about the positive past 6 years. I also had a psychologist evaluate me and received a written report. I had a brief lower back injury and suicidal ideation while active. I was fine throughout bootcamp and began having problems in AIT. I have become a stronger and healthier man since that period of my life and have come to peace with it and grown from it. They have come back requesting further records and we have supplied them. It's been a back and forth process now for a couple of months and our periods of contact are becoming less frequent. I feel like I throw a lot of questions and follow up requests at her so I've tried to back off and ask about every three weeks for an update. I know they want to be thorough with the evaluation and waiver process, but has anyone had any experience getting to this point in the process that can shed some light on what could be holding things up or had similar circumstances? I've been patient but it's hard to sit still when it is this close. I may need to think that it's a good thing that they're taking this long.

Thank you in advance for any replies.
