Default Army 12A slots?

Hey guys,

Prior enlisted 2LT 12A with the UT NG. I'm moving to Riverside area soon and was wondering about 12A slots in CA. I've already started talking to the Guard OSM about slots with the 578th and I'm waiting to hear back if they have any slots that haven't already been given to ROTC kids but this time of year, I may be outa luck. Regardless, I thought I'd try and learn about units in CA even if they don't have slots currently.

I'm also open to the Reserves but I can't find any useful info on the Reserves in CA. Are there any Reserve Engineer units in the southern half of the state?

And assuming there are Reserves openings, are there clear benefits to one over the other? I know the official differences between NG/Reserve but I'm curious to hear from people with experience in one or both.

For example, I was able to enjoy 7 months of Covid orders immediately after graduating OCS last year, by far the easiest job I've ever had. I know that was an option in every state but def pretty fun. On the other hand, having to fight fires all the time or live in freezing parking structures in DC sounds pretty crappy.
