OPTIONS AND OPPORTUNITIES
The Army Reserve has more jobs and more career opportunities than you’d ever expect. As a prior service Soldier, you have the option of keeping your Military Occupational Specialty, or branch, or choosing something totally new. There are more than 120 Army Reserve specialties that you can choose to further your civilian and military careers.
You may be eligible to receive incentives and educational benefits by affiliating or enlisting with an Army Reserve unit close to home. Joining the Army Reserve allows you to continue receiving your military benefits while proudly serving your country.
24-Month Deployment Stabilization
This offer is available to Active Component and Individual Ready Reserve transfers to an Army Reserve unit. Deferment from involuntary mobilization for 24 months provides predictability for families and allows time for you to transition to civilian life.
Reduction in Military Service Obligation (MSO)
As an active Army Soldier, you may gain options to reduce your total military commitment if you transfer into the Army Reserve.
If you’re an active Army Soldier nearing the end of your active duty commitment, contact your installation Reserve Component Career Counselor (RCCC), who will be able to provide options and additional information. Call (800) 325-4389 or (502) 613-4200 to get the name of your installation RCCC.
If you no longer have an MSO, contact your local Army Reserve recruiter.
