Q. I was in the Kentucky National Guard for 7 years and was honorably discharged in 1976. During that time I attended basic training at Ft. Bragg and advanced training at Ft. Eustis from December 29, 1968 and June 23, 1970. I am currently in the FAA as a federal employee and I am near retirement.
Does this time in the Kentucky National Guard training for almost 6 months count toward my SCD calculation? Will I need to “buy back” the time?
A. No. National Guard service or training under the call of the Governor of a State or performed for a State under Title 32, U.S. Code, isn’t considered to be creditable service.
