When I first heard about the SMP program it really interested me. I would really like to join the NG and take ROTC classes when I go to college. I thought that this would give me further training for when I commission as an officer and would Probably help me with my LDAC performance. When I asked the PMS at a school he told me that joining the guard while in ROTC wouldn't help me at my LDAC and that the training I will receive from ROTC will be enough to get an excellent grade at LDAC. Is this PMS right? Also, if I join the guard and was able to MOS infantry would this help me if I was able to branch infantry as an officer? Thanks in advance.
