Issues & Cases

ARMY RESERVE - AMEDD OFFICER UQR

ARMY RESERVE AMEDD OFFICER UQR (Unqualified Resignation) APPROVED, HONORABLE DISCHARGE ORDERS CUT

Matter:  UQR (Unqualified Resignation) for Army Reserve Medical Corps (AMEDD) Officer

Service:  Army Reserve

Summary:  Our Client, a senior field grade medical doctor, tried to move things through the system on his own for more than a year before he was referred to us. The situation was a flat out mess. Two levels of command had disapproved his request, and to add insult to injury, his request and paperwork kept getting sent back down the chain for additional information and work … then back up — and back down again. After twelve months of this, things got the point where it was simply maddening – for the Client and his wife.

We began by opening lines of communication with Client's local unit, while simultaneously reaching out to JAG assets at both Brigade and the Group/Division level. While the local unit command and full-time support staff was open, candid and fully supportive, battalion and brigade commanders were a problem. For reasons which bordered on the arbitrary and capricious, both the battalion and brigade commanders, disapproved Client's request, despite the fact that he had served for seventeen total years and had deployed to combat theaters multiple times. Thankfully, the JAG relationships established at the higher command levels proved far more reasonable and responsive, and, as a result, we were able to secure a general officer recommendation for approval, after favorable input from the command surgeon's office.

The next stop in the process was to secure endorsements from levels within USARC G-1. Normally a fairly smooth and brisk process, this time Client's packet stalled. More than 2 months passed and still we hadn't seen that critical G-1 thumbs up.

Result:  After several weeks of carefully sustained maneuvering and some diplomatic pressure, together with outstanding support from both JAG and AG personnel at Bragg, we finally got the green light. The following day, final approval came from the general officer level, and the next day Client's honorable discharge orders were cut … 17 months after Client initiated his request on his own, and nearly 5 months after he came to us.

Highlights:  With the help of literally a team of dedicated professionals, we were able to right the ship, focus on the real life story behind the paperwork, and help a good man and officer, who served his country and everyone around him, long and well. Client was afforded the opportunity – albeit with a curiously unnecessary struggle and inexplicable delay at the mid-range command levels – to leave service honorably, with grace and dignity. Many thanks, therefore, are once again due to everyone involved in this one.
