I'm in the exploratory phase enlisting and I was told by my recruiter that the only way I would qualify for SLRP was to go 09S. This wasn't my initial route for getting SLRP which is ONE of the driving factors for wanting to join. Before talking to the recruiter I had wanted to enlist and go 12B. I just talked to a buddy who had been enlisted with the guard and has been out of the service as of December 2010. He said that I should ask around and verify that 09S is the only way to qual for SLRP. So essentially Im here to ask if there is any way to get SLRP without going 09S. I'm in PA to clarify because I know it differs from state to state. Thanks for the input!
