  • Joining the National Guard

    I just finished my freshman year of college and have been considering joining the National Guard. I live in Hawaii. Is there anyway that I can join and complete training without missing school? I just want to be able to help people in times of natural disasters and defend the U.S. if necessary. Thanks.

    Some have stated otherwise, but I was offered the college-first program that makes me non-deployable for 4 years. I think you can stagger basic and your tech school so they don't mess with semesters, but I do believe you'll have to do them at some point.

      The College First enlistment option is no longer available. You can, however do the Split Training Option where you would do Basic Training next summer, return for another school year and attend AIT (job training) the following summer.
