how do you join active duty and the NG and not get any "college help" which by that you probably mean GI Bill??
Don't count on a bonus, don't count on being picky about getting a job...
Because when I joined the army I had a G.E.D.. I did get the GI bill where they took out 100 for first 12 months and matched. But did not get the College funding that others did. I didn't want it but I would have liked a bonus. I was uneducated at the time of all things army lol. I had a good gt score but because of my G.E.D. I was told I didn't qualify for a bonus. Yet once in I met others in same situation who received bonuses. I am not planning on being picky but I am going to try to be a lot smarter this time. I'm not sure I want anything other than 11B. I want a chance at my EIB for one.
