    Wont be long and I will have two years in service! WOOT, a little pay raise!

    It will happen just give it more time, I had to wait about a year for my waiver. Hopefully you will not have to wait that long.
    Wow, that is fantastic. Pay raises are hard to come by these days! You give me hope! How long are training and seminary?

    A year will be devestating, but in the end worth it. I am just praying to get in eventually.

        i will tell you why we cannot get more people in the army... cause they have tightend down the regs on enlistment waivers!!! they would be getting more people down to serve if they would just loosen up on some moral waivers.. and not get so many of those college kids tryn for free money and find out they cannont hack it cause there not tough.. cause of past mistakes ive made in my past iam not eligable for a waiver but yet i still have my concealed weapons permit and am by law allowed to own buy and posses a firearm but not fight for my county.. dont make sense to me....

          Nothing says you can't join your state guard/militia (kinda like a volunteer fireman) none paid position.

          Plus President Clinton down sized the Department of Defense across the board. Kinda like rob peter to pay paul. In reducing the budget the DOD is the first to get slash....Tax payers can't afford a million man army plus all the "socialist" programs now....

              Each State Guard tends to have its own requirements, and application methods. Since they aren't federal, they vary state by state. I do not know what "jobs" they offer, but they are mostly focused on Emergency Management/Crisis training. Some States do not have one. New Jersey for example, does not have a state militia, but does have things like the Auxillliary Coast Guard, and a Navy Militia...Thingy.

              New York on the other hand, has a very large and active State Militia - and I believe it also receives state funding.

              They have a purely state mission, and their uniforms and name tags will often read like "New York", or "New Jersey" or whatever state they represent.

                  It's entirely volunteer. Each state has their own requirements and regulations for who can join. I suggest you simply look up the info specific to your state. I don't know where you are from, so I can't even send you in the right direction.
