Wait, what? Isn't Erin a Reservist?
Yes, yes I am! But AHE recognizes that your Air Force provides you with choices, and that you must do what's best for you, your career goals, and your family. There are some common experiences for all three (active duty, AFR, ANG), but they are each their own unique beasts in other areas. I write from my perspective as a Reservist and there's just some questions I can't answer without referring you to another subject matter expert (SME).
Dina began her Air Force career as an active duty Airman, but switched to the Guard through the Palace Chase program [more on that in a future post] after having her son. She is also part of a dual military couple, and married to a fellow Airman as well. Dina blogs over at Blueberries and Bokeh, where she shares her love for photography by assisting others grow in their own skill set! Her AFSC? Photojournalism. Pretty damn cool if you ask me! Read what she has to say about the ANG after the jump!
