I've got a question for all current and former ANG pilots (or I guess active duty too). I am looking into the possibility of competing for a UPT pilot slot with an ANG unit. I know that the training will take me away from home for quite some time (for a couple years in the beginning at least) and was wondering if any of you ANG pilots had a serious relationship before heading off to AMS and UPT. I am just wondering if there is any possible way to keep a relationship alive while away at training. I know it isn't something that can be easily done but I thought I would ask if anyone had any experience in this situation. Is it possible for g/f's to live with you on base during training? Can you live off base? Are there any breaks during the initial 52 week training? Just wondering, thanks for your opinions.
