My husband and I got married at the beginning of the semester, and he is in Army ROTC now approaching his senior year. We're trying to get as much information as we can so we can try to decide together what he will choose as his top options for branching. Obviously we're considering many options and we're trying to determine what would be best for us. My first question is how does this work? He puts in the branches he's most interested and depending on his OML points they just kind of go from there? My second question is about choosing the branch. He is heavily considering military police. What does military police look like for an officer? We both want to minimize the time we have to be away from each other, so is there any particular branch that doesnt deploy as much as others? My third question is active duty, reserve, or national Guard? What are the pros and cons? All the information I've recieved so far has been one-sided ("This option is the best because...") so I hoped to get some real information on here about what the different options are so we can hopefully come into this more prepared. Thanks in advance!!
