    Default Prior Service

    Prior service Air National Guard, 9 years, E5, Honorable discharge was Air Transportation = 88H

    My questions are...

    When I go up to MEPS what are my chances at keeping E5?

    Do I have to go into the comparable MOS that I was in the ANG?

    Do I qualify for the national call to service program? If not what is the shortest amount of time I can enlist for?

    If I get to MEPS and find out that 88H doesnt allow me to keep E5, will I be able to ask what MOS or MOS's would allow for me to keep rank?

    Thanks for the help

    FYI...
    Im not looking for a short term enlistment, I'm almost finished with my BA and want to go to OCS, I'm looking at a short enlistment to ensure I don't get "stuck" enlisted longer than I want to be.

    31, 32 in Oct. I realize that the "stuck" comment sounds bad. What I meant to say was I want to make sure I don't age out of the possibility of OCS. "Stuck" was just a shorter way to say it.

    Thanks for the help.

    42 is the age limit. You have a decade.

    are you joining the regular army?

    You have a decade but they could also change the age limit for it at any time and also the older you are the less the chance could be of you getting selected over someone who does not require a waiver...good luck either way...
