Is there any california national guards in here or national guards that have advice or can guide me?
DO NOT FOR THE LIFE OF YOU JOIN THE NATIONAL GUARD! I REGRET JOINING GUARD/RESERVES AND WISH THAT I HAD WENT ACTIVE, just my opinion, if you want to join the military for yourself and to challenge ur body and mind both physically and mentally then go for active all the way! As for what branch, if you want to enjoy yourself I say go air force or navy.
Your best bet get with a recruiter, take the asvab, DOESNT MEAN YOUR GONNA JOIN WITH THAT RECRUITER, ask for your asvab test results, take them to all other branches and see what jobs you qualify for! Best of luck to you and if any other question please feel free to PM me, Take care!
