I'm not active anymore, I'm in the national guard now. my last deployment was with an air force unit that didn't know about army reenlistment regulation, so when I got back they told me my window for reenlisting had passed so my only option was to get out entirely or go reserve or national guard.
its not so bad but next time I get the chance I'm going back to active duty. this once a month thing is weird when your only used to a max of 4 days off at the most lol (not counting leave).
how bout you?

I'm out entirely as of last year. I couldn't stand the Reservist life. I should have went active national guard. Take it from me don't EVER leave because in civilian life its hard to find a job man unless you want to work at McDonalds' or something like that. But maybe with Trump well have more opening for 11b/c again. I'm used to active duty times and sitting at home all the time looking for a job is murder man. Take if from me man just retire don't leave if you don't have to

i know what you mean, 8 years active duty as a weapons expert and instructor and now I had to put away almost $1500 just to become certified for the same thing as a civilian. luckily I'm almost there, but like you said, its hard getting used to things when the army handed you everything without even the curtesy of letting you know what had to be done to get that outside the military. I'm not political in anyway, but since trump supports military and veterans, I'm hoping things get better for us too. either way, the only thing that helps me is the fact that I live in a VA town and have disability. I hate that I have to fall back on that but either way, there isn't much out for us anymore.
