Personally, I would not hold my breath for such a thing. "Needs of the Navy " are always going to come before sliding you into a conveniently open FTS slot that happens to be located in your home city.

If he chooses the right rate it's highly doable--there are limited slots for FTS so he would have to choose a rate that is undermanned. He could probably jump from NOSC to NOSC if he wanted to, but of course that would hinder his advancement opportunities. Also, the advancement for FTS is slightly lower than for regular active duty.

Right...and you don't always get the rate you want. I know far more reservists who ended up in the rates where they were needed to fill holes than in the rates they necessarily wanted.

How is the full time reservist? Do you get stationed far from home or do they keep you near home?

If you are FTS (Full-time Support), i.e. working a full-time administrative and training role with reservists at a Navy Operational Support Center (NOSC), you may end up at any NOSC where you are needed.

At our local NOSC, most of the FTS people are from other regions. My spouse's previous FTS position was about ten hours from where we are from, and about 16 hours from our prior duty station.
