An option I've been considereing for over a year now. I know that you can have completed no more than 15 years of AFS before needing a waiver to be considered for initial selection into the AGR program. The 13 year rule basically changed to 15 years. The HRC website covering AGR has been outdated for over 2 years now. Table 2-1 of AR 135-18 should clear it up.
