I signed a six year contract with two inactive. I decided to go to IRR for my last two years but an army career counselor convinced me over the phone to go into another unit. On my DA FORM 4187 I had to acknowledge that I'm not authorized for drills until I get orders. I never received the orders and made attempts to get in contact with army counselor but couldn't. Finally got a letter regarding unexcused absence that gave me a address and date to attend, which I did. Now they are giving me a notification of separation. Is there any way to go back to the IRR or anything?
You need to have a military law attorney review your separation paperwork and advise you. The Army will appoint you a defense counsel, or you can retain private counsel, but without seeing the file it is difficult to advise you. But a transfer to the IRR is the least of your worries. A possible Other Than Honorable Discharge is your biggest worry.
