Thanks for the response. I have wanted to do "something" for quite awhile, just trying to find out the best branch to join in the DFW area.

Just pray that you never need to use your reserve medical benefits (duty related injuries/illnesses only), because they'll send you to a VA hospital, if possible). [i]If[/i] you wake up, you'll be lucky if you still have both legs. When I got off active duty in '92, I had to go to the VA for my physical. I've seen shit there that made me NEVER go back for follow-up tests.

There are n medical benefits for reservists. You are only covered by the military when you are actively participating on a drill weekend or on your two weeks yearly active duty.
