  • Branch Switch

    Hello and thank you for taking the time to read my thread,

    I am finishing up my last summer course at the moment and should be Commissioning within the next couple of weeks. I received an LOA several months ago for an Infantry unit and already reserved my BOLC date for 01OCT.

    I recently found out that Infantry is rather over populated by Officers in my state, and was wondering if it was possible to request a branch switch as I am not Commissioned or in the National Guard yet? I should have checked into this sooner, but I figured I would check in the forums before calling the OSM or National Guard HR Staff.

    Thanks for your help

    Talk to your OSM about this. I would recommend not over-thinking the statistics, and trying to do the OSM's job for him. Take the branch and unit that make the most sense for you, and realize that for many reasons you may take a second career field later on.
