I was in a mall today and a guy stopped me and asked if I was in the military. I told him I was in the Air Force and am now trying to get into the Army National Guard. I asked if he was in the military. He flashed me his ID and said he's a recruiter. He asked me why the Guard and not Reserves? I told him I originally was trying to get into the Reserves but since I had problems with that recruiter I changed to the Guard. He asked me who the recruiter from the Reserves was and I told him. He told me that recruiter from the Reserves I was working with doesn't know anything about the Reserves and no wonder I left him. He asked if I ever planned on getting out of Ohio (don't know if he was about to go on a rant like I've heard other Reserve recruiters say that once your in the Guard it's hard to go active, or change states). He asked what MOS I wanted. I told him 68W with M6. He then told me that you can only get M6 if your grades are good enough in 68W school. If they are not good enough they won't send you to M6 training. He then told me that the Reserves is better for medical MOS's. He explained to me that the Reserves have better bases, units, and that since they are federally funded they never have to worry about not having money for new equipment or anything. He said that if I was going to pick a non-medical MOS he would tell me the Guard is better, but since I wanted a medical MOS, the Reserves are better. He told me that in the Guard 68W's are just combat medics and that they don't perform any other duties than that. After all that he asked me if I ever seen the show "Deal or No Deal". I told him yes. He said going in the Guard is like taking the $100,000 case of money, when you could have won the $1,000,000 case of money, that I wouldn't be getting the best deal. He told me that his brother went to 68W and M6 training and is now in college to be an RN (which is what I wanna do). I don't know if that was BS or the truth but that's besides the point. Anyways he gave me his card and said if I changed my mind to give him a call. Being the type of person I am I would like to hear the comments people that want to chime in on this topic to maybe clear up some of the smoke this guy could have been throwing at me.
