The Guard is not something you do for the money or benefits in my opinion. Do you want to continue to be in the Guard? It's a big commitment. Just my opinion. Follow your heart and talk it over with the family.

I have several friends in the NG.
It sucks. Those guys miss more shite the past years bc of some sort of activation or drill.

I'm not geared to be told where to be and what to do.
Whole lot of that going on in the national guard.

It does sound like you have made up your mind. The military isn't for everyone. Without getting into an argument on how the Guard is and all, I will say this, the Guard is playing you instead of you playing the Guard. Too many people complain about it rather than change it. I could tell you exactly what to do, but you probably wouldn't do it. Thank you for your service though.

What is your Rank, MOS, and unit type?

SPC, 68W(medic) (could have had my 5 but the unit was 6 hours away, not doing that shite. )

Artillery, but I can get selected for anything since I'm a medic.

I was a medic also in an engineer unit. There are units in each state that are non deployable. You need to find those (or even the maintenance unit in your state). You can find an MOS in one of those units. It might take driving, but like I said, you probably wouldn't do what it takes. I did this and have been in 12 yrs now. I am a SSG 74D CBRN. I don't have to drive, but would if it was needed. Best move I made. I was fed up with how units were. I decided to do what it takes and changed. I just signed a new 6 yr enlistment and got the $10,000 bonus. So along with more drill pay, $25,000 in bonuses, only deploying because I volunteered, never having my unit deploy, getting 2 degrees, them paying for me to get my CPA, family insurance being cheap, life insurance being cheap, and getting closer to collecting retirement ( without putting any money into it) , it would be worth driving 6 hrs.
