  • National guard and ROTC

    Hey ladies and Gents,

    This is my first post on here, so if I posted this question in the wrong section, i'm sorry.
    Currently I am a 25 year old freshman in college and i want to join the guard while i'm in college so i can stay a full time student and hopefully join the ROTC program while i'm in college then become an officer when i go active duty.

    Could I join the guard, go to BCT and MOS school then enroll in ROTC in my junior year of college.
    If so would that be a good plan take.

    What you have described is perfectly legal, and relatively common. Ensure that you take no incentive which incurs a service obligation that you don't plan to fulfill. See the link by my name below for additional detail.

      What is your ultimate end-state and what do you gain by joining the NG?

      Reason I ask is that everything you just said does not require NG duty. In addition, like the LTC hinted at, certain NG benefits will lock you into NG service... thus, negating the AD option.
