View Full Version : National Guard to active

08-03-2015, 13:05
So i was recently denied entry to active duty through the Army and was told the only i could join was either NG or Army Reserve. Since becoming a Green Beret is not an option for the Reserve i chose to work with the NG recruiter. My question is; is there any possibility of going active at any phase after selection (if i get selected)?

This question is asked at least once per month, and has been answered repeatedly.

Personally, I would recommend youngsters enlist in the regular army then make a decision to go SF, based on army experience.

Oh wow I apologize. I assumed it wasnt an already covered topic. being it wasnt brought up in the last post somebody asked (being he was immature and disrespectful, I understand now why his question was a priority). The only reason I am joining the Army is for the one goal of earning the chance to become a vital part of a group and team. Ever since the first time I seen a team walking around in Kandahar I idolized Green Berets as my gods, and that have been the only thing I could see me becoming so I have the decision and reasoning behind why all down, in case Im portraying myself as just another kid with a pipe dream and no plan. With that being said, am I allowed to resurrect a thread that is dated and see if anything has changed?
