Re: Air national guard deployment

I was surprised it was not USNR. I knew there is a F-18 squadron at Carswell - at least was last October when I was last on the base. The F-18s at Carswell belong to VMFA-112, a USMCR squadron.

Re: Air national guard deployment

I’ve never of a transfer from AFRC or ANG to USNR flying billets. I’ve seen many go the other direction. USNR flying is a pretty small community. Watch this vid. He went from AFRC F-16s to USNR F-18s, and back to AFRC T-38s. https://youtu.be/jXxnocjj3gk https://imagizer.imageshack.com/img923/426/2C...
