Here's the thing. I'm thinking about joining the US Army Reserve in the coming months and I was wondering if some of you who've been there could give me some information. I just wanted to know the likelihood of being sent to Iraq in an MOS such as 21 Mike (Firefighter) or otherwise put on active duty in some other theater. My concern is being called up while in college...and getting maimed or killed in Afghanistan or Iraq. I want to serve, but I also want to finish a degree in a reasonable amount of time. This is something that has really become a flashpoint in my family, and in my thoughts. If anyone has personal experience with this, I'd just like your advice. Thank you.
