If you are going to ETS prior to commissioning in the ANC Stay Reserve. This will prevent a break in service and make it both easier to join/make the cut and to keep your records and pay straight. A break in service is a pain in the butt and can work against you. If you are concerned about not being released from your reserve contract, talk to the unit you will join before you join, they will be the ones to sign the release papers and sell yourself to them. And prior enlisted is a major plus, especially if you can bring letters of recommendation from your COs (current/past) and a double plus if you are a medic or can get letters of recommendation from current ANC officers. There are no guarentees, but these things work in your favor.
