Quick question for anyone who may have been in the same situation or may know the answer... I am to be awarded my Good Cookie 5 days after induction day to the academy this year. Does anyone know if I will still be able to get that medal although already having received my DD-214? Any insight would help. It would suck that I made it three years and miss the mark by a few days. I also heard through the grapevine that there is a waiver process that happens where it is possible, I just don't know for sure.
