My son is a reservist for now. He leaves for boot camp in a week. Then he has 27 weeks of A school. I have a lot of questions about what happens after for that for reservists. Also, he may try to go active at some point if possible. His recruiter was unclear regarding education after A school for reservists.
Thank you so much for replying. His rate is GM (Gunners Mate). Did your son ever get to use the GI Bill for college? They told him he would be able to go active after fulfilling 2 years of his 6 year reservist contract. He was planning on going to school during that time. He was told he could go to school after 90 days, that's why he chose this route. What would you say were the "positives" he took out of his 6 year Navy experience?
