    Hey guys i've been in the reserves since late 02 got deployed once but money is getting tight and I wouldn't mine serving out the rest of my commitment on Active Duty which would take me to 2008. So basically by the time I would get around to going Active it would be about 2 years active time.

    Whats it like getting the duty station I want or will they just send me where they want? And further more will I know what duty station I'm getting before I actully sign my active contract?

    Thanks.

    lol that sucks where did you go for that year?...we got activated in march 03 to go to Iraq and then I guess they didn't need our unit so we sat around at mob site for a month and we went down to GTMO for a year. crazy shit.

    i want to go to the air national guard but i called my unit today and they said that the CG isn't allowing branch transfers.

    does anyone know how to get out of this? Should I switch to another command and then put in my request to change and hope they have some cool generals that allow me to switch?

    i mean this is..if i don't go active duty.

    Ok because theres is "home station" and "reserve base"

    Reserve base could be anywhere.
