I mean c'mon... You really buy into the hype?
The MINIMUM requirement will be the initial training, the annual training and the 1 weekend a month. You'll be commissioned and be required to buy all officer uniforms, dress blues and participate in all that officer stuff.
Then there is the threat of deployment. Depending on your specific unit you could be in theater for a LONG time. Hmmmm, let's see. CRNA is used where? Surgery. Where is surgery done? Why in a forward area surgical team or MASH.
LOL, keep believing that you "really won't deploy" because they don't DO surgery in Iraq or Afghanistan right?
The money is real. The tuition reimbursement is real. It does NOT come free... Weigh your decision carefully. Get EVERYTHING in writing.
You WILL earn it. Good Luck!
Been there, Done that. Got the T-shirt...
