I was with the Office of the JAG from 1985 to 2006 ....

I was in the OR in 2006-2008... I wonder if you left before I got there... :-)
Sorry for derailing conversation :-)  This one was a good read!

Nope. I was still there. In fact Sep 2006 to July 2009 I was working out of Ottawa full time with the Comprehensive Information Management Project team. For the first half I was working out of Baseline with IM Gp folks and the last half at Rideau on the fifth floor just down the hall from DMP. I would have probably been up at the orderly room about once a month or so.

Quick Question about ED&T even though very unlikely that it get's turned down not once but twice would it be better for my record wise be.

A) just release/quit and skip ED&T
or
B) it doesn't mater why I quit in the end, even if the reason is ED&T is turned down so long as I give notice/bring back kit, and in the future I could join up with the army again (and most likely a different unit) in the future?

Snake,

You have been offered an abundance of help on here and on Reddit. I suggest you start reading and heeding the advice given to you.

I have even offered to help you personally, as I have many connections in 39 Brigade that could be of use to you. If you still wish to take me up on my offer, you can PM me.

Regardless of whatever is going on in your life that you need to go on ED&T, it's highly unlikely it will be rejected. But first and foremost you need to COMMUNICATE, by word to your immediate Supervisor/Section Commander and by your ED&T request memo to your CO through the Chain of Command.

There are many people out there (and even in your unit I'm sure), that will help you and want to help you be we can do only so much, you need to reciprocate.

Depending on your circumstances, in the rare event your ED&T is not approved, as long as you show up once a month, you don't have to release.

Releasing is more a long term move, more something you'd do if you don't plan on coming back for several years. If you only need a few weeks or few months to regroup your life, ED&T is the way to go. Getting back in isn't always that easy.

If the problem is that you don't like the trade/unit, you can put in a request for a Voluntary Occupational Reassignment.

Hope that helps.
