I am 28 years old with 2 kids (1 more on the way), and was considering enlisting in the Mass. National Guard to be an MP. I believe that it would help my ability to get on the job, but that is not the only reason I would do it, so please don't get things in a bunch about serving my country for the right reasons. Can anyone give me some 'real' insight about how it will impact my family, and my ability to get on the job? I know that I am not always getting the whole story from recruiters and websites, and I have no problem with the potential of getting shipped off somewhere. I am the sole breadwinner for my family, so if I make a commitment like this, I want to be able to take care of them. Is anyone here an MP through the NG, and was it worth it? Thanks.
