Will the army National Guard accept active duty marines?
Normally, one cannot be part of two organizations at one time. Once you complete your term of enlistment, you may join as long as your "re" code is usually 2 or less. sometimes a 3 is ok with a waiver. With a waiver you, more than likely, will not receive an enlistment bonus until you complete an enlistment honorably. Tennessee has an enlistment term of one year, which is ideal for someone in this case. But to answer your question concisely, yes, after you are discharged from the Marines. Oh, if you don't have an mos that is applicable in the Army or you would like to choose a different one you may have to complete an additional school, not a big deal though. Hope that helps.
