For anyone enlisting, the program code has been changed to VZ. It is a 5-year deal with a $7,500 bonus.
So let me get this straight, there is a 0321 enlistment option, yet right now they wont let 0311/0317 with experience latmove to 0321? I don't really understand the logic...
There is not bonus for lat movers or reservists right now. 4th Force would be the way to go to BRC because the infantry monitor isn't letting 03XX guys go 0321 right now.
I had read that the one can only do 5 years with the option of a 2 year extension and then back to there units. Is this still true? The article was from 2001 and I was wondering if this was true for AD and reserves or just AD if at all? I am currently a 0311 sgt in the reserves trying to lat move and get with 4th force in Hawaii. Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.
Last I heard 4th Force was transitioning to quarterly drills like us, so it would be 3-5 days of training every 2-3 months plus a 2 week AT in the summer. You'll have to verify with them though.
I understand that it may take some time to get into BRTC after transferring to the unit.
Do you think that would pertain to SOI as well, or would that be a more immediate school that they would send someone to?
It's been a relatively quick process for the lat movers at my unit. They're usually at SOI within a month or two and then on to BRTC from there. It shouldn't take longer than 6 months if the unit's admin section is halfway decent.
