Well today sucks...no correction...this year sucks. One bad break right after another all year.
But today definitely takes the cake.
Things had been going good at work. Nobody was fighting I was getting the job done and my supe was recommending me for a promotion (mission wise not army wise)
So my plt sgt comes over to me at my desk today, I thought it was going to be about the combatives course I wanted to sign up for. He tells me to lock my computer and follow him...kinda wierd.
So I follow him and he heads to a conference room...thats never good but I can't for the life of me figure out what I could have done?!
Inside sitting on the chairs are my 1SGT, my old plt SGT and my current plt sgt.
Apparently Senior Chief (we are a joint military work force so army/airforce/navy/marines...etc all work together under navy) had gone to my 1SGT and told him that the navy was "not impressed with my work and were reccommending action?" this came out of nowhere. Like I said nobody has had any problems I thought that I was on a good track mission wise being about to get promoted!
So my 1sgt tells me that this has been an "on going thing and theyve had problems with me before" well the only problem iave had is a kid that thinks its his mission to call me a b**ch every single day and an NCO who dislikes me because her friend dislikes me so she tried to get me in trouble and got caught doing it.
So now they are sending said NCO to be personally incharge of me, my own NCOIC. If she finds a single thing wrong with how I do my mission or my "attitude" then she will report me to my 1sgt who will take my clearance, kick me out of the building and will be issuing a bar to retainment and reenlistment. So if that does happen I will be getting out in feb of 2015 with no chance of trying to reenlist or to come back into the army at a later date!
Also my 1sgt told me if said^ does come aroun he will also be recommending I get chaptered out, as the army is looking to downsize by 80,000 and are taking the bottom 10% int he army...and that quote "i am in the bottom 10% right now"unquote
HOW DID THIS HAPPEN?! Not one single person has told me they are dissatisfied with my work. I asked my supe, and my officer in charge and neither of them had heard anything about this!
I am dumbfounded by this broadside. Im not on bad terms with anybody and senior had not come to me nor had anybody else saying they had found anything wrong with my work or my attitude...ive been happier the past month than I have since I've been here since I've been volunteering at the rescue.
I just don't understand...the future is looking very bleak right now...i don't have much hope for me staying here with my clearance.
If I get booted out and I get my clearance taken, there goes any chance ofm e getting a job with the FBI, NSA or anything else I was looking at after my enlistment was up..ill have a very bad mark on my record....and I don't know why.....
