  • If enlisted in the Guard, can I only apply to guard units for a UPT slot and not reserve units?

    I am looking into enlisting as a 17 year old to the Jacksonville ANG (125th fighter wing) as a crew chief. I think this will increase my chances at a upt slot upon getting my bachelors. If I do that and I’m committed for six years, will I only be able to apply for guard units in that time or can I apply for reserve units as well. Just for context I’m hoping to get a fighter slot one day.

    Goonie – you aren’t tied to the guard. You’re a free agent and can apply to both / even active duty. Good luck!
