I served in the Marine Corps from 2011 to 2015 and is now currently serving in the Army National Guard with a ets date for Feb 2022. I plan on going Active Duty and my question is since I’m a 88m will I have the opportunity to reclass to either a 13F or 19k? And I also am MOS qualified for 13B from my Marine Corps years. And I’m going to BLC this October so will a possible promotion to SGT have any affects on a possible reclass?

There are many factors to consider. First, the strength of the MOSs you want to go into, second the current strength of your current MOS. If you current MOS is over strength in the Active Army, there is a better chance for you to reclassify. Also, the strength of the MOSs you want, they must be balance or under-strength in the Active Army. Additionally, you line scores need to meet the requirements of the MOSs requested and your security clearance. Finally, the Active Army will determine your grade upon entry.
With prior service it’s a little different as far as getting a different mos, I believe it is possible but I am sure someone on here can give more information but it is usually what does the army need at the moment and if they need the mos you already have why pay to train you in something else. If you make E5 yes that changes what opportunities that will be available to you but again that depends on is that’s an option at all and when you do it.
