    Weighing options of going SMP

    ROTC/Reserve Units (Advice needed)

    I'm a senior in high school this year and I was looking to enlist in Army reserves after I graduate. However, I can't just enlist in a unit because I need to be non-deployable so I can finish college in 4 years then go active. Is the split-option route good? and am I deployable after...
