    So I'm taking a few weeks off busting the shoplifters to come out to Atlanta to serve the great state of Georgia. Sometimes its a PITA to live in Texas and be in the GA National Guard, but it is really paying off right now. I drove in expecting to work my tail off and spend a lot of time running around outside, turns out, I don't have to do anything. I somehow managed to schedule my borther to AT with me, so I get to hang out with him for three weeks. We get here to the office, I track down the PLT SGT to find out whats going on for the next three weeks, and he tells me, "Go in the office, lock the door, and if your lucky you can sneak out at 3pm never being seen." Awesome. Plus, I'm rumaging through all the desks and find a stash of EasyRider and titty magazines.

    The way I see it, I am getting paid $0.48 a mile and E5 pay, plus BAH/BAS, to sit around and read titty magazines for three weeks. Plus I have the weekends off to go hang out and get drunk.

    And let me tell you, $0.48 a mile from Fort Hood to Atlanta is sweet bank, and they pay me for three round trips over three weeks.

    I love the Guard.

    Oh, gotta go. They just knocked on the door and said they are using the company van to take us to lunch. I think we are going to a place called CrazyHorse. Hmmmm...

    So how did you stay in the GA Guard when you are in Texas? Is transferring units when moving left more up to the individual?

    And you are getting mileage from home to AT?:eek1:

    Certain MOSs can stay in their units if they move out of state, and the unit will pay for you to come out and drill. 97E,97B,98G,98X are some of the MOSs that are allowed to do it. I do get paid mileage from Texas to Georgia, $0.48 a mile.
