    remember, they specifically have to request the waiver... and many just don't want to go through the trouble of that when they can take 30 minutes, or an hour... lie to some gullible teen... and try to meet their quota's.

    With me it is different.  They know I am not young, nor stupid.  They will have to work, and submit that letter, and try to get the waiver.

    It isn't they can't... they don't want to... and it may not be any different for other recruiters, though I have yet to prove that...

      I am somewhat clueless here. What reason are you being given that you can't enlist?

      •  the specific reason is (0+ / 0-)

        that I separated at a certain rank and I held that rank to the maximum amount of time allowed.

        that I cannot re-enter the military at any rank other then that one, and because I have already served my maximum amount of time, I can now no longer return at all.

        By regulation this is true... But, the regulations can be waived by order of higher command.  It would mean that the waiver be sought and granted, before I could be accepted.
