I'm considering a reclass to 37F. However, my civilian career is more demanding than most as far as time commitment. I'm wondering if 37F current optempo would put too much on my plate. Although, the job sounds right up my alley!

I have been in CA for 20 years, not PYSOP, but the OPTEMPO is very similar. The OPTEMPO depends very much on what COCOM your unit is supporting. If you are supporting PACOM, expect a lot of missions, if you are supporting CENTCOM, expect very few. Everyone else is somewhere in between.

One advantage to serving in PYSOP is that the missions (your AT) is spread throughout the year rather than everyone going for two weeks in the summer like most USAR units. This may allow you to commit to a mission that is during a slower period at your civilian job.

Even prior to 9-11, PSYOP units had a higher OPTEMPO supporting Bosnia and Kosovo. As part of a PSYOP Battalion staff (S3 and XO), I had a lot of fragmented AT (not 2 weeks consectutive) that enabled me to do more than 14 days. That did make it easier for me to take the time off from work. I also think the training opportunities will be greater and more diverse in a PSYOP (MISO) unit vs. regular USAR units. Regardless of your unit, you need to make sure you communicate clearly with your employer to minimize conflicts with the work environment.
