AH!, Ft Benjamin Harrison. My last three years in USAR I spent in the personnel (201) section of the 310th Maint. Co., 5th Army, Jackson, Michigan. My last 6 months, I was in charge of it.
Part of my responsibilities was to submit the requests for discharge to 5th Army at Ft. Ben., on a timely basis, for those members whose active reserve commitment was ending. Requests had to be signed by the company commander.
When my time was up, I was called into the Captain's office to discuss the possibly of extending my enlistment. I was (truly) interested, but with conditions: promotion and return to the Ann Arbor Reserve Center, closer to my home.
He told me that was not possible.
So, I said I would submit my request for discharge. He said that he would not sign it. I told him that I had submitted it the prior month with a stack of others. I knew that I could cancel it if it suited me.
What an insult to him. He obviously did not read names of discharge requests last month, just signed them.
I have my honorable discharge, and my DD214 is in a safe.
At 78 do I need to worry about my military status? LOL
