I received an els after 180 days after I asked to speak to an IG this is considered a reprisal. And know I reenlisted in national guard and I have to do basic again and Im concidered prior service. I also lost my job because of this.
You didn’t exactly pose a question, more of a position statement--with the facts as you see them-
You were ELS'd as a some kind of reprisal-possible, but almost impossible for you to sustain.
You claim the ELS was conducted after you served more than 180 days--that is unlikely.
You lost your job because if it--you lost your military job, yes that's true.
You have to do basic all over again. I am surprised the NG would take you..
What was the military's reason given for your entry level separation?
Were you counseled before you were released? Twice at least?
Did you receive an RE code?
Did you speak with your Chain of Command and a JAG before the ELS was completed.
There are not enough facts to determine if the military overstepped its authority. It is entirely possible that you were ELS'd because you were not considered suitable for military service and its also entirely possible you asked to speak to the IG about some issue. Asking to speak to the IG if the command finds you unsuitable for service does not buy you a "get of out jail free" card and the existence of the two events do not automatically related because they simultaneously occur. Finally, I am surprised the NG would allow you to enlist after an ELS--if I were you I'd not complain about doing boot camp over again--you should be the honor man this time.
If you feel some injustice has been done, see a military lawyer in your area and lay out ALL your facts and circumstances. That attorney may see something you can take action on.
