Is there currently anyone serving as an ME in Mississippi as a reserve? I want to be able to stay home and the recruiter I talked to mentioned there are several opportunities to serve as an ME here.
Off the top of my head, there's Port Security Unit 308, Station Gulfport, Station Pascagoula. I noticed you mentioned you want to stay home. Please understand that being a Reserve is more than just two days a month and two weeks annually. Those days are long gone. The whole reason the Reserve exists is to augment the AD forces when needed. You WILL be activated and/or deployed at least once during your career. I did 29 years in the Reserves, between the Army National Guard and CG Reserve. I was activated five times (all with the CG Reserve), with four of those being deployed away from home.
If you have any other questions about the Reserves, let me know.
