I've always wanted to serve, but now with a new baby, wife, and a firefighter civilian job, the best option I see is to join the guard. I wanted to know if there are any guard members out there who could shed some light on how things are. I'm currently a firefighter/paramedic locally here in Miami/Fl. I will be coming in as a medic E-3, but maybe E-4 if I can renew my national EMT license quick enough. I plan on applying for OCS in another year after I have more credits in school. Any contructive thought or ideas are welcomed. Thanks Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
