They are willing to help but the National Guard does not receive near as many benefits as Active Duty Army and we are not treated nearly as good as far as those benefits. Many of our leadership come from Active Duty and have many more benefits than us regular Guardsmen so they do not know what kind of benefits we need. They are already taken care of and we are not.
Health insurance. Education. Travel.
The health insurance is the most cost effective but solid insurance I have had, the care is exceptional. Education is a constant so if you want to advance you have to have both military and civilian education to do it, and it's a good thing. The pay is good but the military is always asking for more, the demands are great on time and family and the work life balance is usually out of balance on the work side. There are always extra military opportunities that can augment your civilian job.
