Jason called me today, saying I would not be going to Iraq. He said I was one of the top 18 and that their VP was going to talk to Sallyport and advise them to hire us. He also said they are still going to pay me standby pay, but wouldn't say for how long. I don't understand why they would pay me if they know I'm not going. Makes me wonder if there are some legal issues and they are just trying to cover there butts. After all, we did sign an offer letter stating they were going to pay us x amount of dollars. Now they say sorry bout ya. I think if you have all of your receipts, legally they have to reimburse you. The standby pay...I just don't understand that at all. Just my two cents, and sorry to everyone else who is in the same boat as me, I feel your pain.
