The only options while on inactive status I can think of is being moved to a full reserve unit and participating in point generating activities, or, get someone to get you back into active duty, or have someone pull strings to get you involved in inactive reserve point generating activities such as instruction, Honor Guard, or even some volunteer activity on a military facility or at a military function. The first think I would recommend is find out what earns you points and focus on achieving what is needed instead of hoping for an elusive waiver.
Hmmm, now that sounds like a good plan and will follow that. I can't go back in as I am 61.
The whole thing sounds kinda bogus to me. That is 9mos short of 20 years and denied retirement. But I am not a slacker and if I am missing that time, I have no problem working it make it up.
Thank you so much for your reply!!!
