Hello all. As I mentioned in my first post (this being my second) I am a current ROTC cadet and am trying to get a feel for what life in the Guard will be like when I commission in 2015. My first thread was very general, so I decided to focus in on a subject that is quite important to me, or will be in the future: family. I realize like all soldiers there will be training and deployments, but I was curious as to how much time officers in particular get to spend with their families during regular drill months. I am planning on getting engaged to my girlfriend sometime after I am out of BOLC II and have a civilian job. From the posts I've seen around the forum and in my thread, I've gathered that the Guard can be a full-time commitment for officers even though it's considered a "part-time" military component. I'm opening this up to NCOs and other Guardsmen as well, but I'm most interested in the officer perspective: Do you have a decent amount of time to spend with family during regular drill months? Thanks ahead of time for your help and, of course, for doing all that you do.
