    Reserves to AD again

    Advertisements
    I was wondering if anyone has any information on going from reserves to active duty. I'm just curious and DF is still at work. How do you go about it? Is it possible, once your a reservist, to enlist to active? My fiance is going to be a reservist in October, attached to a marine unit(he's a navy corpsman,he's AD right now). Any help would be appreciated!


    Thank you for my siggy Stacey!

    yeah its possible, i believe you had to go to meps over again, and get some testing done and do some pt testing. I think the best bet would go talk to his recruiter maybe

    I know that it's possible, people do it a lot---reservists will do that while in college, then graduate and go AD. That was DH's plan at first (not anymore). I have no idea HOW to do it, I just know that it IS possible, and fairly common from what I hear.

    Okay good. I wouldn't want everything he's worked so hard for to be null and void and have to start all over. Thanks!

    good luck Kara! that's kind of what Kev did. he first signed up as res, then had them switch to AD. It took a lot of work and they were really annoyed. they like there reserves, it's more money for them to have a AD.and I know it can me done. talk to a recruiter or someone he's close to and higher up.

    good luck sweety!

    I know it can be done. Hes NCS right? I seem to remember you saying he is. John is NCS and in his contract it states he'll have to be in active reserves for 24 months before he can go back to active duty for any branch. I think we're pretty much done with the fight to get him to stay in so now we're trying to figure out how the reserves work.

    Yes he is NCS. It sucks. I wish he just had a 4 year contract. But this way he gets a taste of civilian life and reserves then can choose to go back to AD if he wants. Same with John, he can explore civilian life and if it doesn't work out, he can go to military again after 24 months. Has John tried to request it yet? I keep telling Mike to try and request it but he wants to try civilian life first.
