    Reservist right now, going to finish up college.

    If I go active, what's a good place to be stationed in? I know everyone goes to Japan or Korea.

    AGR FTW. technicians have the best of both worlds, IMHO.

    but if you go active, you could go to belgium, germany, italy, japan, korea, or THE NETHERLANDS (where amsterdam is)......if i go active, which has been a thought for a while (unless i go WOCS), i will shoot for the rotterdam admin facility....about 45 minutes away from amsterdam ;)


    everytime i fight with the wife, i say to myself "fuck it, i'm going active to germany." but i never do it. lol, she doesnt want to live in europe, but i loved europe.....so that would be the easiest way to go HA, beeyotch, score for the husband for once.
     
  7. I believe AGR is hard to get into as an officer. I think they only take more senior officers. I dunno about enlisted though.

    dunno about officers, but that is probably true.

    for enlisted, it's all about watching the offers, applying, applying and applying again (if at first you fail)

    the more you apply, the better your chances of getting a position, as they will become familiar with your attempts and see you are serious (from what i understand)
