  • A: Once you leave active duty and/or active Army Reserves, your access to AKO will cease. For all practical purposes, the Army will consider you a civilian with a two year recall option. This applies to all four military Services/branches. Be sure to get a copy of my med and ERB records in case you need them in the future for disability filing with the VA. The military/St. Louis have a history of losing soldiers records. Cover your six and put your copies in a safe place. Unless you put your copy in a safe deposit box, recommend make a second copy and ask your parents or a close friend to retain it for you. Never know when a house fire or theft of your personal affects may occur – hopefully never.
