I am currently about to relocated to Texas and I want to attend Baylor University. Saldy, its about 56K a year for me a to attend and even with FAFSA and Scholarships. I would still owe 12K after each semester. I always wanted to join the AF but I do not know which would be best for me since I want to go back to school.

Could someone elaborate on the benefits for becoming a Guard or Reserve? Education wise?

As a suggestion, go to the Military forum, //www.city-data.com/forum/military-life-issues/. Quite a few similar threads.

There are a number of post 9-11 GI Bill benefits, but they're not immediately redeemable, in other words they require a commitment for a couple years before you're eligible.

I am an AF Reservist and got my degree with the Montgomery GI Bill about 15 years ago. At that time Oklahoma National Guard members had their instate tuition waived. I don't know if Texas offers this benefit. You really should contact a recruiter for the TX Air National Guard and an AF Reserve recruiter. Then go visit those potential places to drill, if possible. Many of them like to do interviews anyway. Make sure you get a guaranteed job for the job you actually want. There is an AF Reserve center in Fort Worth and I'm not sure where else you could drill (I drill in Oklahoma). The military is undergoing massive cuts in personnel but fresh faces are always needed! Good luck!
