deployment for reserve soldiers
The deployment phase for Soldiers in the Army National Guard and Army Reserve is similar to that of Active Duty Soldiers, but there are a few variations, including a phase in which the Soldier’s unit demobilizes, or returns back to reserve status.
Once activated and deployed, Army Reserve Soldiers receive the same pay as Soldiers of the same rank on Active Duty. Additional types of pay, including Incentive, Special Pay and a Family Separation Allowance, are available to those who qualify. Federal law also protects the civilian jobs of deployed Army Reserve Soldiers.
