Air National Guard or Air Force Reserves? GI Bill?0Whispering if the dependency 2012-10-15 05:45:36
I got out of active Air Force about six months after 4 years of service . I'm thinking of doing it part time. I can not seem to find an objective comparison of the two . I have the college loan repayment on active duty , so now I want the GI Bill . I want the best education benefits . I live in Massachusetts and ANG pays 100 % of tuition through a doctoral thesis which is awesome , but I wonder about the GI Bill . Any advice on the benefits of education or anything else would be great. Thank you.
I enlisted in the Army Reserves, but now I'm think about the National Guard.?0Addi2012-08-26 23:05:16
March 11 I joined the Army Reserve as 89B Ammunition Specialist . Some of my benefits are stability mobility two years (which means that you can implement for the first two years , unless something big happens ) , MGIB kicker 350 and 20k student loan repayment . I do not ship out until June 2 and was wondering if it was possible if the National Guard and has nothing better to offer to the school .
National Guard or Reserves able to hold down a career?0Cherelle Taylor2012-08-17 08:30:03
I'm thinking of joining any of the National Guard or any branch of the reserves. I'm about to graduate from college and I really want to serve my country and large cash benifits and a steady paycheck every month to cover rent or student loans , but would also like to pursue a career in my field. I understand that the end of week 1 time per month and 2 weeks a year contract and most likely be called a road for a year or more to actively serve I'm fine with it. But between these times it may actually have time to get a graduate degree and continue my career? I've heard of attorneys who have their own practice and serve, but do not know if this is normal.
Active Duty vs National Guard vs Army Reserves...?0shakira.shakira2012-09-20 14:11:04
ok I read everywhere that the Army will pay up to $ 65,000 for student loan repayment , the Guard and Reserve - $ 20,000 . My Army recruiter told me that I would receive $ 72,000 and I decided not to do active duty and asked about reservations and told me I would receive $ 40,000 to repay student loans ... I'm trying to figure out why I would be getting much more 7,000 or 20,000 of all parties on the Internet says you can get student loan repayment ... very confusing .

Can I get both LRP and GI Bill in National Guard?0Dee Williams2012-10-02 01:43:03
OK . So thinking of going in as an officer of the National Guard . I know that in the military , you should reject the GI Bill to obtain repayment of the loan . Furthermore , the agents do not qualify for LRP in the army . In the Guard , officials must commit to eight years to receive reimbursements for NAO students , and its up to only $ 50,000 compared to $ 65,000 in the army . I have yet to see any requirement that they must decline the GI Bill , however ( going to grad school ) .
What's the difference between the Army National Guard and the air national guard?0lenny2012-08-13 02:14:02
.. And it would be best for me? I'ma freshman in college. A costly vary . And the cost is doing wonders for my parents, and even my sister, who also is helping me a bit. But I 've realized I can not always count on them, and I have to stop sucking them dry , and start doing things on my own. I was looking online at the "military option " . I know there are 2 different branches, but as jobs, wages , benefits, etc wise , what are the differences? Which branch offers the most money for college? and or repayment ? Also my most important national security with a double minor in cyber security and criminal justice. I'd like to get a job in a branch that offers something similar to it can vary ! Very quickly , I could not do the ROTC here at my school because it was booked , so I would have to wait 3 years for an opening. Something crazy like that . Also , not to sound like a D! Ck or anything, but I 'm not trying to make a career. I feel as if you are going to be an officer, who is in it for the long term. I have absolutely nothing wrong with service members that make it a career , my other sister is a JAG lawyer (Lieutenant Colonel) of the army reserves , and a civil lawyer with the NRA. She is making a career, but that's not something I'd do. Thanks for the replies / tips / advice.
Air National Guard or Army National Guard?0Count Iblis2012-09-18 18:26:02
I'm not sure which is the best for me . Does money collectively bid more than the other? I really want to be able to make a living , like living in an apartment on my own and go to school and , of course , serve in the army . Looks like a great balance. I am also interested in the repayment of the loan and get money to go to school . Which of the two is best for this?
Can I join Army reserves or Nat Guard with this profile?3Vonsell2012-08-20 15:50:04
Does anyone have a look at my profile and let me know if you qualify for a position within the reserves or National Guard as a 09L interpreter / translator. Let me know if there may be problems after enlistment - and what to expect if I am bound by contract, without hope of entering the program. - Age 38 - Male - Caucasian - married without children - Permanent resident in the state of MS - Excellent fit, very active - BA degree (Psychology), high school diploma from hometown - Ten years working as a consultant for oil / gas company's contract management and competitive intelligence, experienced offshore - Proficient in English, Portuguese (semi-proficient with speaking / reading Persian / Arabic) - Eagle Scout, avid hunter / outdoorsman - Set own / operate small businesses in the town (the financial health) - Owner / homeowner with no significant debt (mortgage + 1 small credit card) - Currently student loan rehabilitation - Conviction -> misdemeanor possession of marijuana / paraphernalia concealed weapon + (August 2000 - North Carolina - family vacation) - awaiting forgiveness through North Carolina government - Two traffic tickets + load drivers license expired -. No history of drugs post-August 2000 - Solid family ties (. No divorce, abuse, etc) Not sure if I'm leaving out the details (you can add if necessary), but that's my idea immediately. My biggest concern is to obtain security clearance for this position, more to get a seat at the language school if I am approved through testing, etc. .. I am also thinking to apply for a position that requires a secret security clearance with a government contractor, completing the term of the contract and perhaps recruit before turning 40 next year. This may give me more time to review in my Persian / Arabic and be more specific dialects. Possible for me to be able to go all the assets in one year from wife to finish school and have ability to move
Should I go air force reserves or army active duty?1Michaelia2012-10-25 09:41:02
Ok , I passed the ASVAB ( score above 50) . My recruiter told me that my debt ratio is high and it woul have to submit a waiver to get into the air force. I have to pay a credit card that is in collection ( $ 3,000 ) or pay 25 % of it and get my credit. Also I have a car payment of $ 499.81 and my half of the rent is $ 330. I usually take home between $ 650 - $ 777 every month for 1 and 15 . My recruiter told me that my credit problems for the care of the creation of a payment plan and you have proof that you are caring and work on getting my debt by May or June , and then put in a waiver or may not I will need a guess . I also told him I'm going out of my apartment so I should reduce my debt ratio. I talked to an Army recruiter and told me that my problem credit ( s ) would not be a problem and wants me to sign on Tuesday for the trial of the deputies . My question is do you feel MedlinePlus As would be better for me to wait and take care of the issues of credit and debt ratios and request the Air Force ? Or should I say hit and go active duty army now and get that money ? I know the quality of the air force of life is claimed to be generally better than any other branch , but the army will take me on as e -4 ( Air Force E -3) and pay up to $ 65, 000 for the student loan ( $ 10,000 Air Force max ) .... What do you think would be the best way to go ? ( ps- if you 're wondering why I'm running to join a branch ... is because my work can be removed on or before June )
Do you think the National Guard would be right for me?0SWETA2012-08-09 13:45:02
I have 27 years and separated (still legally married ) to my husband. We have a 2 year old son . When I was 20, I considered joining the National Guard, but I did not because my focus was in college and do not want to take time off from school. Now that I'm older, I would have in fact. I have some reasons why you want to join : ~ The opportunity to serve my country and work in my work (HS Teacher) ~ A change and a challenge for me ~ Money so I could attend graduate school Repayment of student loans ~ ~ Network My husband ( although again we're apart ) is very supportive of this initiative and is willing to look after our son while I 'm gone , or if it was deployed . I understand that I have to leave my son at times, but in the end, everything is to make a better life for himself . I want to show that her mother did the best he could to raise him as a single mother and she did something honorable living. Moreover , doing so would give me money to go to college. With a master's degree , I can make up to 10% more than what I 'm making in my work. That's about $ 350 more each month on top of the remuneration of perforation of the National Guard. I know while gone, I miss you like crazy, but he is my motivation in everything I do . So , do you think this would be ideal for me? Or is it a selfish act on my behalf ?
