I spent 13 years on Acrive Duty as a 19 K kicking ass on the baddest piece of equipment the Army has to offer. I then switched over to the Oregon Air National Guard. There is a huge difference some good changes and some bad. I kick myself everyday now that I am getting close to retirement and I am going to retire as an E6 which is the rank I held in the Army and the Air Guard made me an E5 which I have held for almost the last 6 years because I have to go to the Air Forces PLDC and BNCOC even though I did both in the Army.
I found that going into the National Guard out of active duty to be a major cultural shock. I ran into a lacksidaisical attitude by all. And a very jealous Platoon Sergeant. When it came to field training, there was a whole lot of batching going on, with very little care to what was being taught. I couldn't wait to get out of that unit.
