View Full Version : Recalled to Active Duty.

03/21/2006, 07:36 PM
I've been recalled to active duty (Army) after being out for 8 years, not by choice.

I'll be leaving at the end of next month for up to 18 months. So I guess I won't be on here as much for a while.

I wonder where I'll be going?

My wife says she's gonna take care of my tanks.

I may have to get her a screen name on here just in case.

Wish me luck...

Good luck and stay safe. If you need someone to swing by every once in awhile, or just a back up for the wife to call in case of emergency, send me a PM and I'll send my info. Hope all goes well.

Stay safe and I hope you aren't gone too long. If your wife needs any problems with the tanks we are not too far away and might could help.

Damn...8 years out I've only heard of chopper pilots pulled from that far back. Maybe with your aqua experience they need you at Pearl. Add me to the list of vols if she needs help. Gods speed man.

wow, I'd love to know the specifics of how recalls work in your situation after so much time out. Good luck man.

Thanks everyone for the support.

I was in the Inactive Ready Reserve (IRR).

I got paid to get out in '98. I get a check every year for twice the number of years I was in. In my case that's 26 years ( I was in for 13)

A condition of getting that check is to stay in the IRR.

It was just luck of the draw. I do have a security clearance so that may have helped me get picked. Other than that, I'm not special.

Again thanks everyone.

I'm sure if my wife needs help, she'll ask for it here!

Good luck....stay safe.
