Hello, I'm currently exploring my options for a path to commission in the Army. I've made a few posts on the ROTC side of things but I figured pertaining to SMC's I should post here. 1. It is my understanding that by attending and graduating from an SMC I am guaranteed active duty correct? 2. If I participate in SMP to an SMC is that guarantee negated, or can I still opt to go Active Duty? I ask this because SMP is meant to be a source for Reserve Officers, but I would like to go Active Duty if at all possible.
