I've heard you can get 2 year contracts with the Army now. Do those two years include basic and AIT?
what he said.
From the Army.com website:
This would include basic training and AIT. I don't know if there is any kind of limit on what MOS can/can't take a two year enlistment. Best to ask a recruiter that question - and please post back here if you get an answer.
I'm sure that is limited to a very small number of MOS's with short training periods. IIRC the new super short enlistments include a year or two of regular reserve time after you finish your active tour.
It's called the National Call to Service program. You do 2 years active duty, and then after 2 years you have to either sign up for 2 years in the reserves or 2 more years on active duty for a total of 4 years no matter how you look at it, then you're in the IRR.
