            Unfortunately, you have to be accessed into the National Guard by your 35th birthday. Unless, you have prior military experience. If you’re PS you are qualified and good to go.

                    I'm from Mass and I have a bunch of questions and if you answered I'd truly appreciate it.

                    Are you guys offering drug waivers (specifically for marijuana possession)?

                    If I joined the NG with a waiver for marijuana possession would I be able to switch to active duty a any point despite the Regular Army's policy of not giving drug waivers?

                    Would I be disqualified from all jobs requiring a security clearance (I would like to do intel if possible) because of the marijuana possession charge?

                    Would I ever be able to move to another state and if I did would I be required to pay back any bonus I may receive?

                    Is the Massachusetts NG deploying anytime soon?

                    How long would it be before I shipped off to bct?

                    Where would I be drilling every month?

                    Thank You for your time.

                        I had about a month of FT (basic) but am considered glossary non-prior so I guess that time can't be used to give me a little more time since it was less then 180 days - I was working with a CT NG recruiter and was delayed due to needing permission from the SG to physical at MEPS (shoulder surgery in 1998) and the permission didn't come back in time before I turned 35 :-(

                            Was that directed at me? No, I was waiting to get approval to physical from the Surgeon General when my 35t birthday hit on August 18th - the SG hadn't made a decision before my 35th.

                              I created a post a few minutes ago under a thread called College and Interstate Transfer. Our son is looking at colleges in Mass specifically. If you would like me to repeat the post here please let me know. Or would you kindly look at it and reply?

                              Thank you.
