A FIELD GRADE OFFICER RELIEF
IRR Delay and Exemption
Client Testimonial #1 - A Field Grade Officer´s Relief
I am a senior field grade officer in the US Army Reserve who unexpectedly received an IRR involuntary mobilization order for Operation Iraqi Freedom in late 2007. To say that this was “unexpected” was actually an understatement. I never imagined or anticipated that an involuntary recall would be used to place individuals into positions that under normal practices would be considered nominative positions.
While I sincerely felt that I would be able to prepare a strong and compelling case for the Delay and Exemption Board, because of the repercussions such a recall would have on my privately held business along with my family, I wanted to ensure that absolutely nothing was left unexplored.
Upon receipt of the mobilization orders, I immediately contacted Bill Meili specifically because of his two plus decades experience in the US Army Reserve as a JAG Officer and in particular his previous success in representing clients in his civilian practice, with the Delay and Exemption Board and Human Resources Command.
I gave Bill every shred of material that I thought would apply in my own circumstance, yet he was still able to expand on that material and develop additional compelling arguments to be used before the Board that I would not have even considered.
More importantly, Bill gave me the comfort that I needed to sleep at night and focus on what is important in life, that being ones family and in my own situation, running my privately held business.
In the end, we successfully short circuited my mobilization through administrative measures and gained my transfer to the retired reserve without having to get to the Delay and Exemption Board. My family and I are indeed thankful.
I would highly recommend Bill Meili to any US Army Soldier assigned to the IRR who has been subject to an involuntary recall. He will stand by you every step in the process and give you the confidence that you need to continue to move forward in your life.
