My husband is 21H, AGR, Kansas NG. He will be deployed in 2009, and because of this my son and I plan to move to Ohio to be closer to family - I am a disabled Vet and have multiple sclerosis. AFTER his deployment is over we plan for the whole family to permanently relocate to Ohio.
However, this presents a HUGE problem for my husband regarding his job. We have been watching AGR job announcements in Ohio (just to get some basic info), and see that they require/prefer someone who already belongs to the Ohio guard - it seems as though it is not possible for my husband to apply for or get a job as an AGR there. He has many years in the military and this is definitely his career. Our fear is that once he returns from deployment he will have to stay in KS for a long time and we do not want to separate our family any longer than necessary.
HOW is it possible to apply for and get an AGR position in another state???? Please let me know of any Engineer NG units within one hour of the Dayton, Ohio area. We need to find SOMEBODY to start talking with and get some info.
I am AGR myself on the federal side, I would call an NG recruiter and start there, they should be able to give you direction and smoothly transfer him from one guard unit to another, even if it is another state.
