Too young to #swag
Yep! Probably (fairly certain) going National Guard this summer. Taking the ASVAB in about 2 weeks once I’m back from Colorado. I’m not going active duty so it’ll be reserves. I’ve been talking to my recruiter for the past two weeks and figuring out a solid plan.Yeah wait, what? Aren't you in school now?
Yes, I’m in school currently and will be for another 6 years give or take. 3 majors with a graduate program after the bachelors are finished. And I figured that I can do the Guard during my schooling, get mass amounts of training, get to serve, and they’ll pay for graduate school afterwards in the event I don’t get full scholarships.
So I’ll be finishing this spring semester doing 18 hours, go to Basic shortly after finals for 8.5 weeks, go to Russia for 5 weeks for a preplanned climbing trip, come back and do ATI training for 8 weeks, then airborne school for 3 weeks and sometime in between all of that, finish 2/3 weeks of private flying for my private license. So I’ll miss next fall semester, but I’ll be able to take summer classes to make up for it the following summer so I’m not too worried about time span.
