    There isn't a waiting period. Have the ANG recruiter pull a SPF ("Spiff") at MEPS (he'll know what that is), to pull your record from the Army Reserves. It will have your test data, physical etc.

    As soon as that's done (should be quick- like a day), enlist!

    Your test scores are good for 2 years, and if you had your physical recently, you should only require a height and weight verification at MEPS. That and paperwork, and that's it.

    Yep. You're DEP discharge so shouldn't be an issue to go ANG. You'll have to talk to a recruiter, but it should be a relatively painless process. The conversation you need to prepare for is explaining to the ANG recruiter why you backed out on the Army. You're not going to be able to do that with the ANG. Once you swear in this time (in the guard) you're actually in the military.

    You could go to a recruiter and ask. You're probably eligible right now. Why did you change your mind and what makes you think you won't change your mind again?
