I have looked to see if there is any info on here about doing Air Guard and AFROTC but haven't found much luck yet so if this has already been discussed I apologize. My son is a graduating HS senior and was denied the AFROTC scholarship. Therefore he has been exploring several other options. His goal is to commission with the AF as a pilot but also is really needing financial assistance for college. He has been speaking with different recruiters and is now thinking of signing with Air National Guard and also doing AFROTC (non-scholarship) in college. He is told he could get tuition assistance along with GI money for college from AirGuard. Also he was advised to start school this fall and then miss his spring semester and do his basic followed by tech training and the return to school the next fall. I would like to know if anyone has opinions on doing AirGuard and AFROTC together and what about missing semesters at school? Any information is appreciated….there are so many decisions and so hard to decide the right direction.
