Hello out there, Any members from the 482nd FW Homestead FL..
Want to know what the work atmosphere is like at that unit especially in maintenance? How is the morale there? Im a weapons technician and am Looking to transfer from ANG to the Reserves.
daoldaot, If I had a choice I would stay where you are. Miami is expensive and the maintenance atmosphere is not the best right now. Morale has its ups and downs but more down. We are in uniform just like active duty but with no benefits.
I recently transferred from an ANG unit to the 482nd. It is not that bad (TR), it is what you make it. It’s just like any other ANG unit. Many of the maintenance personnel are young, from Crewchiefs to Commanders (Not like the Guard); OP’s tempo is the same, same BS as any other AFB, ARB and ANGB.
