Okay I've posted a billion times on this site my apologies but I'm trying to weigh every option possible. I've been considering doing army ROTC at University of San Francisco and doing Split op in the national guard. But I also started considering joining the Air national guard, or the coast guard, but in the end I plan on becoming a Comissioned Officer. Which one of these options would best be suited for me becoming an officer while I still get to stay in school? Air National Guard doesn't have a split op program I believe, national guard does and coast guard does, but the only route of becoming an officer I know of in the ARNG is direct commissioning or ROTC. How do you become an officer in the coast guard or air national guard? I'm an incoming freshman at San Francisco state, I'm waiting for the cadre leader to stop playing phone tag so I can speak with him.
