Is there a different in/out calls for the guard then it is on active duty or is it the same?
Also how hard will it be for a soldier on active duty to get out and join the guard? Currently an E4 on the automatic promotion list. Have 5 years of service, getting ready for my 2nd deployment in the summer and new ets date Nov 2014. My mos 25U, but its overstrength and want to get out of it. Hence my reason to see if there is a different in/out calls for the guard. Thankyou and have a nice day/night.

Talk to your retention NCO about that one.
I was thinking about joining the guard/reserve myself after 20+ years, but I decided I'll just retire and get a government job a civilian. But I haven't let the reserves/guard option go. Always a choice.
Seriously though, ask your retention career counselor. S/he'll know the most about that. Along with the current and past career counselors on this forum, lol.
