    Joiningg the Guard while in FAA

    I depart active duty enlisted after 10 years next year and was wondering if it was safe to join the Guard to finish the last 10? My goal is to get a FAA job some where out in Texas if i can or maybe FL. Does the FAA hire Guard members? Do they dislike those individuals more? any info would be nice.
    Thanks,
    marc

    Re: going Guard? while in FAA?

    Go for it. A lot of us on StuckMic are reservists/Guard members. They have to allow you to do it.

    Could you give me some info?

    Maybe a link to air traffic guard units near FL or Tx?

    Do i come in as a SSgt? SSgt 6 yrs when i get out and may have TSgt line number leaving.

    Thanks for the fast response.

    I'm Navy Reserve. Couldn't tell you about the specific guard stuff. I'm fairly certain you can combine your active and reserve years for the combined 20 for retirement. There are a lot of guys on here that are controllers in the air guard who would be able to answer your questions better. I'd wait for their responses.
