I am currently in guard and was in for 6 yrs prior service active duty. When I was initially building my packet, I didnt declare disability on my prior Class 1 (the one for the board) because my VA claim wasn't processed yet back then, it was still pending decision for the rating. Fast forward today, I already got selected, went through WOCS and about to move on to WOBC phase. My situation is that I have VA disability and that im wondering if I should declare that now when I go through another initial class 1 at Rucker (The one right before flight school). I just don't want to kick myself for opening up a can of worms when i shouldn't have. Will the flight surgeon see that I have disability? Should I declare that I have disability?
Quick question for you all: How well can your report date to IERW be predicted when you sign your contract? Do they schedule you for a specific IERW start date when you sign a 153A contract? What if that starting class gets pushed back or cancelled? Does that happen? I'm about to turn 32 early next year and I want to make sure I'll be in a flight school seat by my 32nd birthday. I'm trying to avoid getting hosed, since as far as I know age waivers aren't granted anymore once you turn 32. To put it in context, I'm a ARNG street to seat civilian WOFT applicant. My packet's done, SIFT passed, flight physical stamped, and I'm going to be boarded soon. If they pick me up, from what I've been told so far, they'll expect me to sign a 153A contract. I just want to be sure that when I sign that contract I won't find out later that I'm hosed on timing and forced to do an enlisted MOS. I know that if I flunk out of flight school I'd have to do an enlisted MOS and that would be on me. Thanks!
Does anybody know where can I find information on the timeline for the Lakota and Ft Rucker? Everything I've found just says some time in FY15 Lakotas will become the Army's primary trainer aircraft. You'd think there would be something more solid since we're in FY15. Thanks in advance.
