What is the name of your state?MN
I joined the National Guard and have almost completed my six years of service and was supposed to be placed into the IRR, However, they just placed a Stop-Loss on our unit until 2031. I also have a 7month old daughter. I was told by a Warrant Officer that when a soldier is pregnant, she should be counseled by her commander and asked if she wants to complete the remainder of her time with the army, or get a discharge. I never got that counselling.
I have also been having back problems that I am seeing a doctor and physical therapist for. I was told from my commander that I will have to go to the military doctor and have them check to see if I am deployable or if I can get out on medical discharge.
My question is- Is it a breech of contract when the army didn't counsel me and give me the option to get out of the army? can I still get out on that hardship. I am an unmarried mother with no family to care for my child in case of deployment.
I also want to know if I could go to my doctor and have them release the information of my medical records and put in a referral of non- deployment?
