Coming from active duty and going guard will be quite a large change of pace. Many soldiers I served with who came from AD and liked, as well as hated, some of the changes.

Your experience will depend greatly on the unit you go into. Some NG units try to reduce the "check the box" training as much as possible to focus on MOS specific tasks. And some unit administrators are very content to boil their unit's training to a Powerpoint after yet another SHARP training.

It depend on the unit I been all three Army national Guard and Reserves and active duty I hated the Guard because it was a good old boy system and a slow promotion system and they are a wanted be active duty but a long way from it love the reserves and it has a quick promotion system and instructor and drill sergeants units which is great

I have been both Reserve and Guard. As SFC Derrick Harris stated, Guard is lot the good old boy system.
