Army National Guard....
On active duty, you're correct. But in the Guard or Reserves, officers can pick their branch and unit. All you have to do is find a unit that you'd like to join and see if they have a slot for you. If so, you go through OCS and when you get your butter bar, you report in to your unit.
BA, Thomas Edison State College
MS, Grand Canyon University
