LEAD Candidate - DEROS curtailment??


Apr 19, 2018

I am looking for some advice from Prior Enlisted Airman that got accepted to the Air Force Academy but was stationed overseas. I currently have a DEROS that is set to expire in Feb 2020 and if I were to be accepted to the Academy I would be leaving around June-July of 2019.

Would I have to get a DEROS curtailment from my Wing CC or will the acceptance from the Academy be enough on its own to waive my DEROS requirements?

I have already talked with my Base MPF and Admissions Counselor but both answers contradict each other and I am looking for first hand experience. I know I do not need to worry about this now but my supervisor is trying to look after me by bring up this topic.
