No not for selection, for SFQC when I took the hardship leave I also got a letter stating that I could return and pick up where I left off. I just don't know if there is a time frame like in selection.
Location: West of Bragg...a few months out of the year
Are you still with 19th Group in MA? I'm sure there is someone at their office that could answer this questions rather quickly. I could very well be wrong but the only expiration I remember is SFAS. If you left under good circumstances I don't see there being too much of an issue as long as your state puts you back on orders.
Disclaimer: I am AD with 0-none-nada NG experience other than some good NG buddies from the course.
No I am not with 19th right now. I had to find a new unit because anyone in the unit tabbed or not holds an 18 series slot and with my situation where I'm not exactly sure when I will return, the unit told me that I can return when ready. Thanks though. I also spoke with a friend in the course right now that asked the NG liason about my situation and you are right, there is no expiration. And I did leave on good terms.
