    I guess I was going for a PM.

    Whats the difference between reserves and NG?

    Does NG get the same medical and stuff benefits as being on AD? I know they wont be completely the same but like what is offered?

    Does it differ between states or it like a national thing controlled by the states?

    Becuase of some crap that happned recently im looking at either National Guard or the Army Reserves so I can go back to college but I still want to serve in the military but I dont think AD right now is good for me. I know the job I really want which goes like side by side with my degree im pursueing in college so this is what I want to do.

    I got other stuff, I want to know but right now im looking for general information, pros and cons, what exactly the NG does and stuff. Ranger told me a couple things but im trying to research this some before I go back to my recruiter to figure out what I want to do.

    Any info about this stuff is appreciated and thanks :bigthumb: :wavey:

    Ive been looking at their website and stuff. I cant exactly go talk to a recruiter cuase im assuming that since I would want to join the Texas National Guard that I would need to be in Texas and being in IL right now doesnt help me. That and anyone whos in the NG I just want their take on it.

    Each state differs for the National Guard.

    Like, the OH national guard pays 100% of your college, where I believe the reserves doesn't.

    I wish I could help more :hs:

    You know where there is a website or anything on each state? I was looking though some stuff last night and didnt find much but general information.

    Im not worried about college, there is like 3 different ways to pay for college in Texas if you are part of the military.

    Pretty much like in the next month ill be back in Texas one way or another. Depending if the job I want is open is when ill be going to basic/AIT (hopefully if I can fix one small problem) So when I go back down there I can go talk to someone and start getting things worked out.

    I just dont want to go in without doing my research first.

    Those links dont really tell me anything I dont know. Guess I need to talk to a NG recruiter or something, I figure ill email one see if its helps any. Thanks though for searching for those.

    Alright. But do the research before you decide which one.

    I chose the NG because it basically had more benefits than the reserves. And I liked the unit I joined.
