That was my thinking as well.
And as The Truth said there are many reservists being called to activy duty, and it will only get worse as recruitment goals are not met.
not so much for the Navy though. their cushion is pretty good right now. it's a few years down the raod when we have to amass a major warship and submarine presence in the china/north korea region is when the call will come. but that's beside the point and he's shortsightedly found himself 'ok' with that.
really, any info on someone's actual experience as a reservist before active duty is what i'm looking for. stuff like how it effects you career, reality vs. advertisement, that sort of thing. thanks for any who can shed some light.
