    I am a prior service in the Air Force. To sum up this real quick, I was not happy being behind a computer all day in the Air Force and I filled out the voluntary separation and brought it to my First Sgt. He helped me get out of the Air Force but I have a re code that requires a waiver.

    I met with the Army ROTC recruiter at my university several times and he said because I have a good GPA, if I do well on my PT test (270 or better) my waiver would get approved.
    My question is, what are some key points I should include in my letter included with the waiver?

    In no way am I trying to have anyone write this for me, I am just looking for ideas and really want to get into the ROTC program. I feel the Army will be a way better fit for me since I have always been very physically fit and active. I am also going to include how I will do the SMP program to show how dedicated I am to becoming an Army officer.
    Thank you.

    I've never heard of these type of waivers (only heard of them for medical issues) but I would emphasize that you have always water to serve your country but the Air Force was a "bad fit" for you. At the risk of pissing some people off here on the board (nothing new for me), most folks in the Army will understand that line of reasoning because they wouldn't want to be in the Air Force either. There's a reason they are also affectionately known as the "Chair Force" by many. Good luck to you and.....GO ARMY!!

    Great point, I was thinking of something along the lines of this and this is perfect. I'm going to include my physical fitness awards and say I had felt I was wasting my potential sitting behind a computer all day.
