"Yea in my bmq course there was a guy who actually became slightly odder so to say, he talked about doing  stuff all the time, went to the mir in week 3 had a med chit for accelerated release. i felt bad  for the guy. but it is true some people do, do it."

-Sould this person have been assessed by a psychologist after he had been talking about "doing stuff"?  By "doing stuff" I am assuming that he is talking about self harm.  Who would be responsible if he "does something" after his release?

good question, cant answer that question at all. its a catch 50 or 20? i think ah... i guess maybe thats one of the reasons why they release the people who fall in the category so fast than?

Can someone please help.  What is the fastest way of getting released from basic training if you haven't reached the 5 week mark yet?

Tell the staff you all want to release.

Use the plural form whenever you refer to yourself during the conversation.

Why is that?

There are so many fast ways to be Released:

1)  Be an utter failure at everything (Training Failure);

2)  Be an administrative problem (Administrative Burden);

3)  Be a MIR Commando;

4)  Compassionate reason;

5)  Fraternize with the Staff;

6)  See a Shrink;

7)  See the Padre; and

8)  Many others.

Best way is to see your Staff and talk to them.  You will likely have to write a Memo explaining why you want to Release.  Most of the above points are not really good reasons to use for a Release.

VR before BMQ
« Reply #56 on: Today at 19:20:44 »
Hello,
My fiancé is currently in St Jean on week 5 of BMQ. He wants to complete it but would like to VR. Does he put his VR forms in before he graduates or after?

Hello,
My fiancé is currently in St Jean on week 5 of BMQ. He wants to complete it but would like to VR. Does he put his VR forms in before he graduates or after?

Word of caution: If he puts his VR in now, with 5 weeks left (assuming he’s NCM), that could possibly negatively impact his experience with the rest of the course, more so than what he may already be experiencing. This isn’t always the case, but it’s a possibility depending on the collective nature of his staff and his platoon dynamic...But anyway, if he really has his heart set on releasing, he needs to decide where he wants to sit around for anywhere from 3-5 weeks+ on PAT platoon. Depending on his trade, CFLRS might be the lesser of two evils, so he should submit them before grad. (There won’t be time at CFLRS after grad, because everyone gets shipped out to finish their next leg of training quickly, so if he waits until after grad he’ll have to submit them wherever he ends up.)

Out of curiosity, (and you don’t need to actually respond, this is kind of rhetorical) why does he want to quit? Has he talked to a padre, has he requested to speak with his staff about any concerns during an admin period when things are calm in order to make sure he’s making a decision while in the right frame of mind? If his decision is based on personal issues outside of training, has he (and you) thoroughly discussed if there’s a possibility things can be managed simultaneously—have all options been explored?

Going from experience—both personal and observed—staff can be receptive and understanding when someone is struggling, provided they’ve been a decent recruit up to that point. It’s common that some recruits have second thoughts for whatever reason.

I hope he’s not making a decision lightly, but the fact that he at least wants to finish BMQ is a positive. The training is good for 5yrs should circumstances resolve themselves and he wishes to rejoin.
