It doesn’t matter what branch you served in; all your time will be added to your time in the Army National Guard. If you want to make a career out of the military, you will be able to reach your 20 years and be eligible for military retirement and benefits.
- Your last discharge must have been under Honorable Conditions. Army RE-4s and Less than Honorable discharges are not eligible for enlistment.
- After the applicant is given credit for total prior service (Active and Reserve Component), the applicant must be able to qualify for non-regular retired pay by age 60. For applicants processing for entry into the Army National Guard, age is not a factor as long as the applicant qualifies for non-regular retired pay by age 60.
- If you have been out less than 6 months, then you may be eligible to enlist without a new MEPS physical. You need to contact your local recruiter so that we can determine your current status. Best thing to do, if possible, is to locate a copy of the last physical you took and give us a call.
- A new ASVAB test is not required as long as previous ASVAB scores can be verified. However, you are eligible to retake the ASVAB if necessary, in order to qualify for a new MOS.
