Before we can continue processing your enlistment, we need to clarify some information.
- You have previously enlisted in the 29th under the name “Chris Moskal.” Can you please explain why you elected to change your name on this enlistment.
- You were AWOL for your BCT on your prior enlistment, can you please explain the reason for the AWOL and what is different now that would allow you to attend BCT, and
- You didn’t mention your prior realism experience from Arma 3 on this enlistment, can you please explain why you didn’t mention your previous enlistment or realism experience.
Please respond here so we can continue processing your enlistment.
Thank you for reaching out. With regard to question one, I’m trying to move away from using my real name in gaming communities. I haven’t had an issue up to this point and I have nothing to hide, but you hear stories of trolls and people giving others grief in RL when they get their real name. So I figured it would be best to submit the application with a name as close to my current gamer name as possible G-Loc.
I have no recollection of applying to the 29th back in 2017. I was shocked to see real name pop up and see an AWOL discharge after submitting the application. I can’t explain the AWOL because I don’t remember what happened. I will say that all of my discharges have been honorable. Going AWOL is just not my style. I always want to leave the door open to return to a group if I want to.
I didn’t say anything about my experience because I just want to go back to being a PVT with a gun and enjoy playing the game. I tend to end up in command very quickly and what was gaming fun turns into a desk job. After taking a break from Milsim for a year or so I’m trying to start over and avoid that. That’s why I didn’t list all of my experience.
I hope this answers all of your questions. Let me know if there is anything else you need.
Pending Headquarters Approval.
I just wanted to follow up on my application.
Thanks for following up. At this time your enlistment is under review by our Headquarters section due to your past realism experience and the prior enlistment/BCT with the 29th. I’m unsure how quickly they will review it, but once they do we will be able to continue processing it. Please be patient and continue to keep an eye on this thread.

116TH REGIMENT, 2ND BN
Thank you for enlisting with the 29th Infantry Division. Your application has been accepted and the next step in becoming a member is to complete Basic Combat Training.
Your Basic Combat Training (BCT) Schedule:
29th Infantry Division [BCT Server] (22.214.171.124:7787))

While we understand if you have to miss a training session, your attendance is a significant factor in graduating BCT.
If you do not understand time zones well, here is a link to a time zone converter, the link already has a preset EST and GMT time zone depending on what link you’ll click. To find the time difference click, ‘Add another city or time zone’ and type in a city near you that shares your time zone and add it. For example if I picked Los Angeles, which is a city on the west coast of America, I can see something scheduled at 7pm EST happening at 4pm PDT.
Your Enlistment Liaison will invite you to the Steam Group of the TP to receive reminders before your training starts.

29th Infantry Division
Thank you for following up and my acceptance letter. I have a schedule conflict with BCT. I will be on vacation and unavailable from December 7th to the 12th. It is highly likely that I may not be able to attend on Monday the 5th or Tuesday the 6th as well due to packing and other preparations prior to leaving. I’m not sure what other time slots are available. I don’t have any plans to work around other than Christmas eve and day after my vacation.
Checking In. I’ve notified both you and Cpl Forest/ @Fall of my BCT conflict.
