    Outstanding! Have you taken the ASVAB yet? If not, go to www.military.com/asvab and take their practice test until you can consistently score in the 90 percentile range.

    Congratulations! :bigthumb:

    NG is a Reserve Component of the active duty military. They fall under the State jurisdiction unless they are called up for Federal duty in times of a declared national emergency. The state will train them for their full-time job, and can also use them for emergency service for things like riots, disaster sites, security, search & rescue, etc.

    Generally speaking, the difference between the Guard and the Reserves are:
    • Guard maintains most of the Combat Arms jobs.
    • Reserve maintains most of the Support jobs.
    • Guard can be called up by their respective state authority for service within the state.
    • Unless an individual Guard member volunteers for individual augmentation, they will only deploy with Guard units from their state. If they volunteer for individual augmentation, they can be deployed with Guard units from other states.
    • Reserve members can deploy with any Reserve unit in the country.
    • They each have their own bonus pools. At any given time the bonus pool for Guard may or may not be larger than for Reserve.
    • You can transfer between the Guard and the Reserve, but if the unit you are leaving has paid you a bonus, they have the right to take it out of your pay.
    There are other differences that someone else might point out. And although I believe everything I posted is correct, I'm open to correction if someone else has better info.

    so I asked if I move can I transfer and he told me yes. Just put in a request and I can transfer to another unit. Is this correct?

    Yes. And it is that easy. Guard members move all the time, and the transfer process is as easy as saying "I'm moving to California next month." They hand you a form to fill out, your chain of command signs off on the transfer, and you hand the form to the unit you will be moving to.
