Enlistment Agreement

“The agreements in this section and the attached annexes are all the promises made to me by the government. EVERYTHING SOMEONE HAS PROMISED ME IS NOT VALID AND IS NOT HONORED. 3. Permanent modification of the station`s obligations. They will move in the army. It`s part of military life. Moving a member of the service costs the government money. If you have served for more than two years, a PCS move may require you to accept an additional service obligation. This can usually be done by expanding your current convocation. Joining the army is a great obligation, both on the part of you and the army.

This obligation is not to be taken lightly. Most first-date appointments require a requirement of four years of activity and two years of inactivity (IRR). But the services also offer programs with active service or reserve missions of 2, 3 and 6 years. It depends on the service and the work you want. All active services, with the exception of the Marine Corps and Coast Guard, offer a University Credit Repayment Program (CLRP). Army Reserves, Navy Reserves, Army National Guard, and Air National Guard also offer a limited repayment program for college loans. In short, the service will repay all or part of a university loan in exchange for your convocation. The credits that qualify are as follows: as soon as you get out of basic training and vocational training for your special MOS, the personnel office of your new department will not want to hear about promises that are not written. All that matters is what is stipulated in the signed convocation contract. The Army and Navy are the only services that have active services of less than four years that are not part of the National Call to Service program. The army offers convocation contracts of two years, three years, four years, five years and six years.

Few military jobs are available for the two and three years (mostly jobs that don`t require much training time and the military struggles to get enough recruits). Most military jobs require a minimum convocation period of four years and some military jobs require a minimum convocation period of five years. The French Navy offers very few two-year and three-year contracts for which the recruit spends two or three years in active service, followed by six years in active reserve. The Air Force and Navy Corps offer the least convocation bonuses. At the time of this annual review of this article, the Air Force offered only 6 AFSCs (jobs) of active service allowances, and the highest bonus allowed was 12,000 $US. The Marine Corps` highest convocation bonus is currently $6,000. The military normally pays the first $10,000 upon arrival at first service, while the rest is paid in equal annual installments for the duration of the summons. No matter what your recruiter has promised you, if it is not set out in writing in the recruitment contract or in an appendix to the contract, it is not applicable. So, if you`ve been promised things like a convocation bonus or special military schools or training (like the Army Airborne School or language training at the Defense Language Institute), they must be included in the final convocation contract you sign.

Finally, at the end of almost all convocation contracts, it is said that a standard military convocation contract often requires four years of active service and four years of inactive reserve service. A typical contract to enroll directly in the reserve or national guard often requires eight years of inactive service.
