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.

Also, unless you've talked with an active duty Army recruiter, a strong possibility that you just might not be able to go active since National Guard going active is a back burner priority for them. The have a mission quota each station needs to fill each month with Seniors and just graduated kids. And like the SGM said, depends on availability. And you will need to take the ASVAB again.

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.

You'll have the opportunity to reclass to what the Army needs at that time on that day if they need it, have class seats for it, and you qualify for it.. You'll find out what that is the day you're sitting in the chair
