"The National Guard is not for everyone. Days are long and deployments are longer. But if you go into with both eyes open it can be a life changer. Here are some tips! • Study to get the highest Arms Vocational Aptitude score as possible. High scores open doors to better jobs • Pass all your PT test and maintain fitness or you will not get promoted • Take advantage of all educational benefits! This is one of the Military's best kept secret. (Note) Private Schools may exceed benefits limits so do your homework and ask questions • Remember, after E4 you have to earn your promotions. Your buddies may end up being you biggest competition! • And finally, manage your pay well by saving it. There is no reason you should not have a few bucks stashed away after four years of service. More if you go for 20 years"
