    Is anyone familiar with the process from reserve to active duty that could explain it.

    The steps presented are correct. This is a tricky process though. Many people are told to go reserves and it is easy to integrate to active duty. This is not actually the case. A lot of it depends on your rating. If the detailer does not need any more people in your rating at the time, you are not going to be brought over. Hope it works out for both of you.

    just curious, can you do more than 1 weekend a month? or is that all you are allowed to drill.

    You are allowed a certain number of drills per year. You can volunteer to go over that and do unpaid drills. You would generally do this if you wanted to get more training. Also, there are sometimes EAD (extended active duty) positions where you could come up on active duty for a period of time (say 6 months - 1 year).

    You can meet the standard, or you can set the standard. It's your choice.

    Rules change, but in old days, you could do 12 drills a quarter. There are two (four hour) drills a day normally. A normal weekend reserve duty would be four drills. Everything in military is bugeted by quarter year segments (3 months). You could do up to but not exceed 12 drills per quarter.

    We had reservists that drilled several hundred miles from home and could get off work in one week periods. At time we augmented active duty command, so they approved, that reservists could perform up to six days (12 drills) in a row. This worked for both the command and the reservists (saves a lot on gas money) and was easier for scheduling big projects.

    Not all commands approve of this. It is always the command who has last say!

    CKMustandCobra:
    I just wanted to get some more information from you about your personal experience switching to AD. I sent you a pm.

    Thank you!

    Good Luck with the switch. One of my shipmates just got his request for Reserve to Active denied. He's attempting to renew his extended active duty contract.

    Gears, do you know any of the specifics about his situation? Rate and Rank? How long had he been in the reserves before trying to make the switch? Was he trying to get stationed in a specific region or area, or just anywhere there was an open spot?

    I know it's really hard to tell whether or not you'll be able to switch because it's dependent upon what need there is in active duty and reserves. So if there's a DC3 and an MKC who are both trying to switch to reserves, and there's a  need for a DC3 but not an MKC, then the reservist who is a DC 3 will have a much easier time switching than someone who is an MKC because of the needs of the CG. Or if you are picky about where you'd like to be stationed, vs someone who doesn't care where they go, so long as they get in, etc.

    Thanks!
