Thread: AKO email sponsor

  1. #1

    Default AKO email sponsor

    Hey all. When I was active, I had a ako email, and it has since been deactivated (was inactive for too long). I would really like to get my account back. The helpdesk said that they can reactivate the email and the account, but since I am no longer an active serivemember, I need a sponsor. Would any of you kind gents/ladies be kind enough to be a sponsor for me?

    Don't feel bad, they killed mine 3 years after I retired. I called the help desk, and they told me I had to go to my local PAC to get it reactivated. I googled the closest Army base and called one of the PAC's at Fort Irwin and they said they had no record of me retiring, (no shit, I didn't retire from there) and to call back to where I retired from. I said screw it. I get paid, and that's all that matters in reality. At least to me. No clue why it got killed in the first place other than I was getting a lot of email from a guy with the exact same name and spelling, but he used his middle initial in his AKO address. He worked at PERSCOM, and I forwarded him his email every coupla' months when people would send it to me instead.

    e.g. Mine was (fake name, so don't try it) Phillip.Rivers@us.army.mil
    and his was Phillip.D.Rivers@us.army.mil

    You can get a sponsor account if you join the Army again while you wait to ship out, other than that I dont feel comfortable sponsoring anyones account.

    Ha! There's a new recruiting tactic for recruiters. "Join today and get a free AKO webmail account! [*shit eatin' grin]

    18 months in Kuwait and 12 in Iraq (all within a 3 year enlistment) is about all they're gettin out of me. I'd say I've earned that AKO account for life... LOL!

    You know what? I agree with you. An AKO account is the very LEAST they could do for you.
