Thank you for your comments. I'm glad that I was able to at least give you the information that you needed to approach the question with your son.The reason that I don't mention that Air Guard or Reserve is that they use the same RE code system that the regular Air Force uses. RE-2 is an automatic disqualifier for Air Force service.It is not as automatic with other branches, so that difference in branch branding or RE designation gives him a chance at entering service with the Army while there isn't a chance with the Air Force (unless he actually gets that RE code changed through DD Form 149).
