Well obviously, your state Guard.

If you are looking at being an out of state member, then that unit would probably decide if they wanted/needed you or not. I doubt that the 19th would take a non-tabbed guy and drop him on a state unit that did not want him.

If you don't get selected, as 18C4V noted, you may get transferred to another non-SF unit that the state Guard needs you in for the duration of your contract.

Question Try outs OCT Northern Cali

Is the tryouts for OCT still on for the 19th SF.. or has it change to a later date.
Also, when is the next tryouts after the one in OCT. I dont have the rucksack to train with but have been training hard in other areas for the one coming up in OCt but still havent touch a rucksack.. although have been working my lower body on an cycle.

Should I wait for the next one and or just go for the one in OCT.. and see where I stand..???

Need your advice??

Is rep.63 geared towards younger soldiers? Are there any "older" non-prior guys that have been successful through this enlistment option?

I havent made it "thru" just yet but here are a few of us 'older guys' who are holding our own.

REP-63 is the NG's version of the 18X enlistment option.

19SFG

Trying to get a hold of an email address for the recruiter at Los Alamitos, CA so I can figure out how this process works. Currently stationed at Lewis, looking to go guard. Our phone here is pretty spotty so I'd rather communicate by email. If someone wants to verify my cred and pass along said email I'd appreciate it.

POC

I am prior service, 42 y.o. professional, wanting to re-enlist, focused on the NG 19th Group.

I spoke with a NG recruiter, was briefly surmised on the process and directed to wait for the next SFRE (which maybe be in November) and try out.

Luckily, I have a "friend of a friend" situation, so I did get a POC, had a quick convo and of course, more questions came to mind after the phone call.

At this point, my POC cannot be contacted (I don't feel this is the proper place to divulge his information online).

I am physically fit, training for the SFRE, highly motivated wanting to serve again and very focused on joining into the SF Community.

If anyone can send me a POC for the 19th Group, Los Alamitos or other constructive direction like,
"KICK ROCKS, YOU'RE TOO DAMN OLD. THERE'S NO SLOTS"..I would be able to focus my energies on another way to serve.

In addition, I would be forever grateful..!

While not related to this particular thread, I will most emphatically echo that sentiment: God, I love this site!
