Hi. I'm a former Marine with just under 10 years of service. I'm considering joining the Guard because I want to restart the time I have left for to use my GI bill and also to actually put to use the time I would be in and go to school.
I have a question about my awards. I know that any personal awards or medals I earned in the Marines can transfer over to the Guard for me to wear whenever I decide to make that move. I'm wondering about rifle and pistol qualification badges I earned when I was in the Corps. I can remember the breakdown for each badge (Marksman, Sharpshooter, and Expert), but I'm unfamiliar with the rifle marksmanship qualification scale in the Army Guard.
I wouldn't mind doing the Warrior's Training Course just to shoot off some rounds because I haven't touched a rifle since '99. In the chance that I don't go to WTC because I already did my 13 weeks of hell back in 1991, would they look at my previous scores and decide on what to give me to wear, or would it be necessary for me to shoot? A stupid question. Can I just wear my Marine badges?
