BE AVAILABLE AT ALL TIMES There's an awful lot of work necessary to get you out of here and on your way to the Personnel Center nearest your home.

If you go "goofing off" so that you miss your processing or miss a meeting that is essential, you not only jeopardize your chances of leaving but the chances of all the men in your group. So play it smart stay together and be available at all times as a group, until your entire processing is finished and your Unit or Group Commander dismisses you. Then check frequently as we may not be able to give you much advance notice on your departure.
