After doing much searching on the PERS website and this forum, I'm still very much confused about what the career path would be for an FTS NFO, specifically a VAW NFO (seeing as though the only options are the SAU and VT-4). The PERS website states that a VAW NFO would move into "reserve component management" after a DH tour at the SAU. What does that mean? Work at a NOSC? Thanks to any FTS wizards who can help answer my questions.
