I have been interested in the military for as long as I can remember. I wanted to join the Army after high school but my only brother was already active Air Force. He & I talked it through and basically came to the conclusion it would be pretty hard on our Mom to have both her boys in the active military. So, instead, I went to college & got a degree but have never been able to shake my interest in the Army. I am 25 y/o & am interested in joining the nat. guard. I have a bachelor's degree so I've been told I'll be an E-4. Is that correct? I spoke with a local recruiter & he seemed reasonably straight forward regarding my questions. I go to meet with him face to face tomorrow night but I'd like to gather as much information as possible beforehand. FWIW, I am not stupid so (meaning no disrespect) I don't really want to drive a truck or guard a gate. I took my ASVAB in 8-06 & scored a 95 with zero study time. Basically, I walked into the recruiter's office & told him I was interested but wanted to know what my options would be. He said "First step is to see what you're qualified for by taking the ASVAB. There's a bus leaving right now if you want to go." So, I went. In the guard, can some of you give me an idea as to what MOS would be decent? I cannot go full-time, just as a weekend warrior because I can't leave my family's farm save for deployment. On that note, what is the standard length & interval of deployment for a guard unit? Any input is appreciated. Thanks, Michael Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
