I want to start by apologizing in advance if this post doesn't make any sense.
I am shipping out for REBI next month. I am assigned to PSU 308 in Kiln, MS. I have toyed with the idea of active duty and my wife is behind me 110% in whatever I choose. My biggest drawback is that I am extremely excited about going to a PSU. I am a certified police officer and firefighter/EMT, and I know that PSUs are made up primarily of reservists. I am going in as a PS, but transitioning to a ME when the time comes.
I have read about EAD contracts, ADSW, and other ways(other than the guaranteed PSU deployments
) for reservists to be "active duty" but still classified as reservists. Would I have a chance of securing one of these contracts with a PSU (therefore accomplishing both of my goals)?
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Also, I plan on driving down to the 308 in a couple of weeks. If there is anyone on this board active in that unit, I would love to hear from you. I'm sure I could keep you busy with the many questions I still have.
Everybody stay safe and thanks for the help!
