Hello everyone I hope everybody had a great Christmas, I had the pleasure of spending mine with a few members from Tango 182 (there in week 4), they gave me great advice for basic which starts Jan 12th. Cant wait, best choice I have ever made. Anyway I know there are a few Recruiters, CG members, maybe even a CC or two on this forum and I am looking for an answer which I cant seem to find lol. Reserve Activation. I understand that I can do voluntary Activation. I truly want to do this. I know that its real hard to go from reserve to active duty which is where I really want to be. (Active duty spots were full when i enlisted) But now I am looking for info on how Vol. Activation works. Is it just as hard as trying to lateral to active duty? what kinds of billets would an activated reserve member normally fill? length of deployments? on average. Would being activated help with a lateral to active duty. I really want to make a career of the CG and I am just trying to get info on ways to do that. Thank you to all that can help and all that took time to read this post.
Oh off topic question. Can I carry time from my pension as a FF over into the CG? I know that I can carry CG time into my FF pension but I didnt know if it worked the other way around. Again thanks to all and Happy New Year.
