Yes, once your active duty contract is expired, and you reenlist for a reserve component.
yes. see a recruiter and he will provide you with a release form for your commander to sign.
Probably not. It's extremely hard just switching from a reservist to active duty, I've heard guys that we're waiting more than 14 months to make the switch to active and are still on hold. Its all about the needs or the Marines reserves and the the needs of the active duty command. It probably won't even be possible to switch, unless you haven't left for boot yet.
It all depends on paperwork...could be quick or it could take a long time
You can be called to active duty.
The National Guard and Reserves are branches of the active duty military.
You can enter the reserves without passing through any active duty. While on reserve, you may be called into duty, and there is no way to avoid this; however, it is only a possibility and a slight one at that, as opposed to a certainty.
The same as the active duty army and reserves do.
The Marine Corps Reserves do the EXACT same thing as active duty Marines except they are reserves. Instead of going to work EVERYDAY, they go to work once a month. They are expected to do the exact same PFT as active and have the exact same expectations and requirments as active duty Marines. The only real difference is the name. Active and reserve. Hope this helps
I dont know can you?
In the Reserve, you can.

Navy Reserves - 39 Active duty Marines - 28 Marine Corps Reserves - 29 Youngest for all areas - 18 The maximum age of non-prior service enlistment, under federal law used to be age 35. In 2006 the Army tried to convinced Congress to change this to age 44. Congress thought age 44 was too high, but raised the maximum enlistment age, under law, from 35 to age 42. Regardless of federal law, the military… Read More
Not unless you're either AGR or on active duty under Title 10 or similar orders.
Contract vary depending on the needs of the service. Almost all contracts are for 6 years, with the amount on active duty and the amount in active reserves varying. Typically it runs 4 years active and 2 reserve, but again, can vary according the the agreement. Talk to your recruiter.
All branches require 20 years service. That is for active duty service. Those that serve in both Active Duty and then in the Reserves will receive partial credit for the reserve years.
Active Duty sends you after a short while of time to a certain place after training. While Reserves sends you after a certain time depending on how long you signed up. [ex. My brother signed up for 4 years, hes had training and after the 3rd year he goes to Iraq for the last year then he is free.]
You have to be 18 years old. Actually the minimum age to become a Soldier (Army of course) is 17.

By repealing the policy, it will allow homosexuals on active duty and in the reserves to serve openly, not in the closet.
Not likely. You would still be responsible for house payments. However, you would be paid some amount by the National Guard, probably more for active duty. No. While on active duty you receive regular duty pay and benefits, not from the National Guard (or Reserves), but from the Federal Government (Army, Navy, Air Force) (Marines & Coast Guard fall under Navy). Also time served on active duty counts toward retirement.
Some disadvantages the Marine Reserves are their lack of funding and resources. They receive older equipment than active duty units.
No. If you want to go from Regular Army to National Guard, you must first finish your active duty enlistment, then reenlist into the Guard - you cannot opt out of active duty during the time specified in your contract.

Six years, with a minimum of 6 months of active duty. As most current reservists have seen, the President can change that if he deems it necessary.
There have been programs where a person could enlist and serve Active Duty for 2 years, then transfer to the Reserves and drill in the Reserves for 6 years. Some program like that may still exist, today.
As a National Guardsman deployed to a combat zone, you perform the same duties as Active Duty forces, thus the risk level is the same.
The Air National Guard is tasked with defending the homeland of one's country and never usually leave the homeland for active duty else, the reserves are a force that's tasked to back up active units, say if half a squadron's personal were incapcitated from a raid or something, the reserves would replace those incapcitated, simply put the ANG protects the homeland from any invasion and the reserve is basicly reserve personal that an be sent… Read More

Should I go on active duty first and then go to college or go reserves and go to college while in the air force?
That's a decision you need to weigh carefully and decide for yourself.
Commissioned Officer status is not rescinded upon retirement. It is a "transfer" to the Retired Reserves and the officer can still be called back to active duty.
US Draftees were expected to serve two years of active duty, one year in Vietnam, if sent there, and four years in the marine or army active/inactive reserves; six years total.
Veterans are reclassified after their discharge from the service. During the Viet War, men were committed to 6 years of service; so a returning draftee from two years of service on active duty, with one year in Vietnam, had 4 more years of INACTIVE RESERVE duty remaining. This meant he was still subject to duty in case of emergency. Most of these men were never recalled to active duty; however, MANY men chose to volunteer… Read More
