Since this is an old thread I thought that I would hijack it. I was a firefighter last year, and a guardsman, but was laid off in November. I turned in a conditional release to my unit and now am going active duty Army. I get a choice of duty station if I remain in the Infantry and Airborne school. I am choosing Ft. Campbell in Kentucky so that I might be placed in the 101st. I am hoping that if all goes to plan I will end up in either the 502nd or the 506th. The biggest problem that I have encountered is with the amount of time that it is taking to get my conditional release signed. So bye to everyone in Montana and hello Kentucky.
