  • 68whiskey

    Hello all. First thing, thanks to all service members on this forum for your service. I am 23 years old and am currently an EMT for a civilian ambulance service. I have been told by a few that 68 whiskeys in the Guard do not do a lot of "on the ground" training at drill. I was told they do more a long the lines of physicals, paperwork, logistics, etc and do not actually get to "play". Is this true? I have considered going active but do to my ex and myself sharing custody with my daughter, I really do not want to move. Thanks for the replies.

    If you are a single parent you cannot go Active Duty unless you decide to give up custody.

    Concerning 68W, Health Care Specialists, their job duties vary depending on the unit in which they serve. If a medic is assigned to a combat arms unit then they'll serve much more time in the field. If you're assigned to a Medical Command unit you may find yourself conducting physicals.
