Anyone have any insight on Active Reserves? I know you either have to be active duty, on IRR, etc.. to apply.

My understanding is it is a 3 year deal with an option to extend 1 year after that if the billet is open.

What happens after your deal is up, do you go back to active? do you go to IRR, etc..

Or do you get a choice of going full active duty or IRR?

They have "temporary" billets open now, but only certain MOSs. They last anywhere from 60 days to a year. The "career" billets, like where you can do 20 and retire opens up in September. From my understanding, they are not releasing what MOSs they are taking, you just submit your package and hope they are taking yours. I could be wrong, but I was all set to submit a AR package but the fact of nothing was for sure made me start planning for something else.
