    Confused Active Duty Vs. Reserve

    Advertisements
    I've decided to join the Army. The first decision that I need to decide on is if I want to do Active Duty or Reserve. At first I was positive that Reserve was the best fit for me. After talking to a few Active Soldiers, I'm now considering Active Duty. They both have pros & cons. Both are great options but I can only choose one. What were some of the factors that helped some of you make your final decision?

    Hubs had to pick Guard because of his prior service. He wanted Active but he is taking this time in the Guard to finish his medical schooling then will shoot for Office and Active.

    Easier to go AD and switch to Reserves if you don't like it than to switch from Reserves to AD.

    I know more people who regretted going Reserves because they couldn't switch to Active duty than going Active Duty from the beginning.
