I have been in the reserves for 4 years, and am currently an E-5. I have the opportunity to integrate to active duty, but will have to drop to an E-3 and will be placed on a cutter in D13 (most likely)
I was wondering if anyone knows anything about this process, or knows anything about what might deny me from being selected to integrate.
Also, if anyone knows what it will be like for me to break in on a cutter. I have a BTM qual as well as all my weapons quals, basic crewman and basic engineer qual, been through lams as well.
The process is just now beginning, but I'm looking forward to seeing how it plays out, all input would be greatly appreciated.
