Problems with changing units

by packnrn packnrn (New) New

Hi everyone,

I have a problem and am looking for advice. I am currently an Army Reservist RN. I don't particularly care for the unit I am attached to. I would like to continue to serve but will unable to do so if I cannot get a transfer. I want to have a look at another unit, however, my commander will not allow me to RST to do it nor will I be allowed to transfer unless there are "extenuating" circumstances. Any suggestions? Thanks,

The commander should only be there for 2 years. Hopefully after the commander leaves things with change for you. Do you know what year your unit is in the training cycle for deployment? If it is in year 4 or 5 almost no units will allow you to transfer since it is eligible for activation. Either you will be able to transfer or things will improve at the unit for you. Remember the grass is not always greener on the otherside. Hang in there.
