I am currently 27 years old, and will be 28 in August. My grandfather retired from the USCG and it is something that I have always wanted for myself, needless to say I have dragged my feet. I got somewhat serious about joining last year, but some things came up and couldn't. I went through MEPS and scored high enough on the ASVAB to qualify for any job. Since then the wife and I have purchased a new house and we have two car payments. My questions area as follow-
-Do the reserves still require the same income/debt ratio requirement that active duty do prior to joining?
-If I went reservist now, would transferring to active duty later on be an option?
-I am an aircraft mechanic for the federal government now, could I be an AMT in the reserves?
I apologize ahead of time if these similar questions have been answered previously, I could not find direct answers in "civilian language."
Thank you ahead of time for your input.
