You should join the SMR for the notion of selfless service and nothing more because the hours are long, and most of it is on your own dime.

That being said, there are full time State Active Duty billets. There are paid missions. Many of the benefits given to CalGuard soldiers are given to us. College tuition assistance after 2 years; veteran home loans after 6 years, USAA membership, 10% discount at Home Depot, but none of that compares to the notion that you do your job better than those that are paid a lot more. If you join with the idea that you are going to get more than you put in, then you wont be happy.

There are all KINDS of opportunities. THIS is the attitude one must have. THIS is the type of Airman, Soldier, or Sailor the CSMR is looking for.

I'm not in recruiting, and don't quote me, but depending on how long it's been since you ETS'd, you can probably keep your E6 rank... might lose a grade, but you wont be coming in as an E3, I promise you.

If you need a recruiter PM me.

Farmer / Flight - of course there is! The SMR has an Air Component, and though we don't get to wrench or safety-wire GE or P&W engines, there are still valuable missions for our airmen to accomplish alongside the ANG. PM me your email, and I can put you in contact with the team in NorCal who can tell you more. BTW - our Deputy Commander for the SMR is a retired USAF 1-star, so there is blue influence at HQ. You'd be able to keep virtually all your ABU and dress uniforms. Just a couple minor changes as per the Dept of the AF regs require of us.
