Just like active Army drill sergeants, Army Reserve drill sergeants lead incoming Soldiers in Basic Combat Training, One Station Unit Training and Reserve Officer Training Corps. They serve as advisors, instructors, and evaluators in 42 states.
Drill Sergeants hold one of the most important tasks in the Army: training the Soldiers who will serve as defenders of the country and future leaders. As both a Drill Sergeant and a member of the Army Reserve, you will serve one weekend a month and as little as 15 days per year on the trail.
Drill Sergeant candidates attend the Army Drill Sergeant School at Fort Jackson, S.C. This course must be completed in one continuous phase of 65 days.
Army Reserve Soldiers, Active Duty Soldiers preparing to separate from Active Duty, and National Guard Soldiers willing to transfer to the Army Reserve should contact the 108th Training Command’s (IET) Command Career Counselor to learn more about how to become an Army Reserve Drill Sergeant. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (704) 780-5760 or to contact the 108th Training Command’s Command Career Counselor.
Active Duty Soldiers that would like to volunteer for Active Duty Drill Sergeant opportunities should contact their HRC Branch/Talent managers. The HRC Active Duty Drill Sergeant Team receives Drill Sergeant nominations from Branch Managers on a quarterly basis.
