Hi. I just enlisted. I ship out to BCT April 16th. I know this may be a bit premature, but I have been recently speculating on the prospect of re-enlisting as active duty further down the line, maybe after I finish college. My question is do I have to fulfill my full 6 year contract with the guard before switching? If not, what are the rules on switching branches? I was thinking of maybe going Marine Corps, but my uncle (who is a marine recruiter) told me the odds of goin from army to marines are slim, even with my specialty of 35M (HUMINT collector). I understand I would have to go back to BCT all over again for the Marines, but I believe I'd be up for the challenge. Anyway at this point it's all speculation. But any light that could be shed on the subject would be more than welcome. Thanks for your time!
