Other than that I used naval for most things. As previously stated get your packet submitted asap. The sooner they have it the faster they can get corrections back to you if you need any.

The CG trying to get you to go Marine route. I'm curious. Do you have your degree already? I was in your shoes about 4 years ago and was a Marine for 8. CW2 now at 224th MI at Hunter. PM me if you need something.

Glad they signed the conditional release. Back in 2012 when I first got this idea my reserve unit basically said no more NCOs are going anywhere. To be fair I didn't push the issue. Better late than never though. I think the other services do themselves a disservice by not allowing for WO aviators, but nobody asked me.

Maserrato, my situation is a little different than normal. since I serve in an aviation squadron the structuring is a little different than a ground side unit, but I recieved my LORs from my OIC (CWO3), my fitrep reviewing Officer (major), an Army CWO4 Pilot (required for LOR and approval of your packet) and my CO (LtCol). I dont think the rank of the person writing the LOR matters as much as their ability to vouch for your character and work ethic. A great LOR from an LT is better than a generic LOR from a LtCol. Unfortunately the flight physical seems to be where my journey ends, Ive been a crew chief on V-22s for 9 years but the Army wont approve a waiver that the Navy has already approved. Good luck with your application and feel free to ask any questions, I got 99% there so I may have some answers.
Sorry to hear that brother. What was the hangup if you don't mind me asking?

Is it Army aeromed that isn't accepting it for the flight physical or is it the Army as an organization that isn't accepting it for enlistment? After watching that documentary Speed and Angels where that dude who was shot in the face and had an artery to his brain severed was eventually cleared to be an aviator and fly F14s, I have a hard time believing there is anything you can't fight.
If it's big army and they are being totally uncompromising and you can't "grease the wheels" so to speak, the National Guard runs their waivers through NGB, not "big army," so that may be another avenue.

Dude just bug the recruiter and make sure he stays on top of them about it and explain the situation to your command. It took me 5 days to get a waiver for my back/knees from the National Guard Bureau. If it's your dream don't let it die.
Happy birthday by the way
