    I'm joining the CG Reserves...though depending on how things go for me, I may want to go active. My recruiter has said that it can be a very difficult and long process.

    I was just wondering if anyone had any experiences with this or know someone who has been through it.

    Thanks!

    As a recruiter, we work with the reservists that try to come to active duty and I agree with your recruiter. It is a difficult process and with the economy and current staffing within the CG, it will be a hard sell to cross over.

    My honest opinion, is for you to seriously think about what you want and chose that path. Going reserves and then switching to Active later may not happen.

    Best of luck!

    I have an additional question to ask about this. My husband was told that, because of his age, his best bet is to get into the reserves and then transfer to active duty as soon as he can. I know that how quickly that happens depends on what jobs open up, but can you give me any type of typical wait-time for the switch to happen? Is 6 months average? 1 yr? 2 yrs? And when does your wait time start? Do you get on some kind of waiting list for active duty as soon as you finish boot camp or a-school for reserves?

    Thank you so much!

    It is based on obligated service for the Rate held and whether there is a need on the active side/reserve side.

    While not very complicated to switch, there are a lot of potential road blocks.

    Do not bet on being able to switch from reserves to active, it is not a guarantee and needs of teh service trump everything else.
