I made the mistake of getting my hopes up and trusting that AFPC and the CFM could not rescind an approved retraining decision.
I think that I will be getting out of the military in the next few months. I feel like I got screwed over and attacked. I can get out of the military early, (before the baby is born) because I am pregnant.
Yesterday, I got a call from my first sergeant and he informed me that my retraining was cancelled and disapproved. The CFM says that she was not aware that my first two interviews with the original base functional resulted in a non-recommendation and it is because of that first recommendation, she halted my retraining and denied me.
The other two jobs that I applied for (chaplain assistant, and personnel) no longer have quotas so I was denied for that as well.
I knew I should have gotten the IG involved right after the debacle with the first base functional. I feel that base functional was biased and had a vendetta against me before I even went to the first interview.
I have an appointment with the IG on Monday and I’ve emailed them everything that I have about this. I feel that the first base functional abused her power and intentionally denied me. I just don’t understand what her problem is with me. I have a recommendation from another base functional that says I am a good fit and I will be a good UTM.
The email I got yesterday that informed me of the cancellation states the reason for immediate removal. FYA+-+HOT!!++SrA+Henseler,+Jennifer+Disapproval+for+3F2X1+
I did not circumvent anything because there is nothing in the AFI that states I can’t have an interview with a different base functional. I don’t feel like this debacle shows that I have no integrity and it shows a dim light on what my future would be like as a UTM. I can’t find an AFI that says that the CFM can do this and AFPC can do this. I don’t know if this can be fixed or if anyone even cares. I feel humiliated and jilted. I am not the devious and shady airman that the CFM is painting me out to be.
All I can do now is hope and pray that the IG can help. Best case scenario is that my retraining gets re-approved and I can continue a long career. Worst case scenario is that I apply for early separation, receive it, have my baby in October and start college in 2019. My husband isn’t concerned with the finances if I get out of the military, and we already budgeted and planned for me to get out of the military. He doesn’t care if I be a stay-at-home wife/mom for awhile. He is tired of how the military is treating me and seeing how the stress of this disaster is affecting me.
I believed in the Air Force. This is not what I signed up for. I deserve better treatment then this. This is what being enlisted is like. This isn’t unfair and wrong.
