Well sir, seeings how I specifically asked her how she did it and it was not through that program, I'll take that this is one of those exceptions to the rules that happens from time to time... Hooah.
Redleg is correct about this. Getting released from the USAR/NG is not the issue, and the issue of being exclusively federal versus having a state mission is pure nonsense. The problem is accession into the active component. The chances of this happening, in general, are very low right now.
ROTC Is an option for me, but since i have already received my undergrad, I would have to pursue my masters which i want to do anyways. The only thing is if i go that route, than i would face many challenges trying to survive with little income.
