Delayed Enlistment Program Answered
No, I'm not hear to recruit.... A friend of mine recently signed Delayed Enlistment paperwork (Army)... The final decision is all him (he's 26 - capable of decision making) - I'd appreciate not having the negative sentiment at the moment (I'd rather not get into the personal story and such).
What I would like to know... Does anyone know of specific details to look at on his contract? I know a few vets that have been screwed over in benefits after getting out (especially in the money for school details). I've already found one lovely "gotcha" that locks his GI Bill rates at the time in which he signs - NOT the time in which he is discharged or when he begins to use those funds (the GI bill is what gives vets money for school for those wondering).
So does anyone know specific details to look out for? This is a 3+3 DEP contract (3 years active - 3 years army reserve). He's scored very well on all of his tests, and is going in as an E3 rank (he'll be a turbo machinery mechanic).
