    TAR is now FTS, full-time support. I don't know why they would offer it, they are active duty, still can be deployed and overall, my husband tells people to run, not walk away from an FTS contract because they claim advancement is better, my DH has been stuck at E5 for awhile now, he still goes to sea, and we can't PCS overseas (you can go to Hawaii, but nothing in Europe or Japan). Stay active if at all possible!

    FTS is kinda like double duty, they have to do reserve and active stuff. Advancement is tough, it also comes in waves it will be uber easy to advance and then suddenly it will lock up. There are also not as many SRB's ( if any) for FTS so you re-enlist without bonuses.


    I will miss you SOS...
    Please be wary of what you post remember OPSEC is not just another acronym.

    FTS personnel are also limited to what ships they can go to. The sweeps that my DH was stationed aboard were manned mainly by FTS personnel.

    Well, I'm what I am and I'm what I'm not
    and I'm sure happy with what Iíve got
    I live to love and laugh alot
    and thatís all I need

    DON"T DO IT!!!!!!

    If your husband feels like he's the Navy's bitch now, just wait!

    No over seas

    No re-enlistment bonus

    Difficult advancement (even thought it's supposed to be easier)

    Get sent to the worst ships (most of the time)

    Very little chance of going active duty after signing a TAR contract.

    I could go on!

    thanks
