Just got into OCS as an Army Reserve E7. Worries my PML would be upset or I’ll somehow be punished for being on orders for 3 months. I told everyone and turns out it’s a non issue so far. Any Tips?

Congratulations on the promotion! I recommend looking into the USERRA laws so you know your rights in the event it does become an issue. A lot of companies and HR types (and even military members themselves) think they know the laws, but really don’t.

Also look into the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve who serve as advocates in this area. In the event that everything goes well while you’re away you can even nominate your employer or supervisor to be recognized for supporting you - positive reinforcement for the next time you’re on orders.

Lastly, keep the communication open and transparent as it sounds like you are. Get everything in writing or at least make memos of any verbal conversations for yourself. Good luck!

Congratulations on being selected!! I attended OCS last year as an Army Reserves E6 and am scheduled to go to a 9 month long BOLC this year. I was in Kuwait for a week this year for AT. I’m taking a few days off next month for AT. I haven’t had any issues thus far. KPMG should be supportive of your military ambitions.

If nato doesn’t count it as a deployment, you probably shouldn’t either

Congratulations. I'm a CW3 in the Army Reserve. The key tip is Communication and transparency. Tell your lead as soon as you know a military commitment is coming.

I’m mourning the loss of a multi year day dream, an impractical fantasy that never could be in the real world. While I don’t want to get into the details of it, I would appreciate warm hugs and positive vibes. It was an amazing day dream while it lasted and I know this is good for me over the longer term, I just need to get through my period of mourning and bury it. Time, space and solitude, as medicine. 🙏
