AGs and other military leaders are not happy with this new law because it will take some control out of their hands, and if they do something extremely wrong, to answer for their actions. We dual-status federal employees, should not be treated in any manner differently than other fellow federal employees. Moreover, many good dual-status employees with great skills, lost their jobs due to "wear and tear" that comes with age, not being able to keep up with the young soldiers entering the force, but as a consequence leaving a void of experience, wisdom, skills and abilities unmatched by their replacements. The new force needs to focus on abilities, knowledge and skills, and not on the old mindset that was implements decades ago. To add on this, there is a lot a fraud, abuse and waste of tax payers by leadership, and with this new reform, AGs and subordinates will have to be walking on egg shells and do everything by the book and not "my way or the highway".

Do your homework and call your state representatives in Congress and the House. If you are a technician then you have seen the ills of a dual-status position. We must rally together and support either making us civilian employees where we can be afforded the rights of a civilian, or make us AGRs where we can partake in the same benefits of Active Army. But, if you stay silent, we will continue to be tasked as AGRs with less benefits than our M-Day counterparts and less pay and protection than a federal civilian. Arm yourself with knowledge and be prepared to rebuff the readiness, cost, and control argument of senior state leadership and others opposed to this transition.

We get to keep experts in their field that have done their service on the military side. People are walking away form good jobs and not considering good jobs because they done want to have to serve in military status maybe for 35-40 years. Give the option "if you serve 20 years on the military side you can op to title 5"
