When did they actually submit your Packet to the Guard Bureau? From what I understand my recruiter is getting my FC1 results then putting the packet together. I would really like to go to TFOT in January... but who knows.

I wish I could tell you.  I finished the FC1 on Sept. 13, and I called my recruiter and the head of formal schooling that day. That's the best I can do.

Damn man, that's awesome. I finished my FC1 in August, and my recruiter still hasn't put it in. I think I am going to keep calling and see if I can't nudge him to finish it. Thanks.

I'm in the same boat.  The generals need to sign at the wing level and higher (eventually even up to the TAG).  I finished my FC1 in July and my packet hasn't gone to NGB yet.  I just hope the January TFOT classes don't fill up by then.

May want to mention to your recruiter that he can submit the packet to the NGB without the FC1 results back yet. My recruiter was waiting on my medical results to submit mine, but he found out that he could submit the package for approval without the FC1 results. Mine was was submitted last week for what its worth. Hope to hear something back soon.

By looking at past posts its hard to tell what my timeline will look like. I'm currently AD enlisted crossing over to the guard.  The recruiter/unit has never delt with this situation before so hopefully there won't be any major bumps in the road. If anyone has completed this process in the past some insight would be appreciated. No one can tell me what I should expect since this is a first for them. I've completed my FC1 here at my current base but I still have to eventuly complete the MFS.  

 

Sep 2016: Interview/Hired

Always wondered how the Guard and ENJJPT combined class worked... Do all guard fighters go through Sheppard, or is that just the luck of the draw?

From what I learned at the 187th FW's meet-and-greet a few weeks ago, it just depends on if Sheppard has a class available sooner than anyone else. Not all Guard fighters go there, and you don't have to do a special application for it.

I personally think it would be cool to meet foreign allied pilots. By the way, did you enjoy the 187th airmen? I'm super bummed I wasn't able to go meet them, as well as other guard applicants.

Luck of the draw depending on when your dates match up. I went to Columbus. We have dudes in our unit that went to Vance and Del Rio as well.

That's what I figured.  The dude I got hired with is the class ahead of me at ENJJPT, but the other dudes in the pipeline are at Vance and Del Rio

Yeah, the 187th was great, they actually took the time to sit down and talk with us (there were about a dozen prospects there).

Sep 2015: Interview/Hired

 

You are fairly behind...The process does not take that long. I was Reserve and hired in Nov 2015 to the Gaurd...although i didnt "palace chase" which is the process you might have to go through, I am graduating OTS in a week. The MFS appointment can be made through your active unit potentially...but definitely start calling around and asking questions. The process can stall easily if you dont stay on top of it.

I just realized I put 2015 instead of 2016.  My paperwork should get submitted to the GB soon but the recruiter said he doesnt think there will be any dates assigned until I actually palace chase and swear in.  I won't be able to palace chase until after Aug17 due to my wife deamanding that she wants to have her ankle pins taken out from a previous injury before we lose our tricare prime.  The problem is I turn 29 in May and they want to push me thorugh ASAP.

Does anyone know how the GB determines class dates?  It seems that some get dates a year out while others only a month or two.  Is it first come first serve, or does the age of the individual go into account?
