If Soldiers complete 20 check ins, they receive the status “Super Trainer.” *Users will only be notified of check ins if location services and notifications are enabled.

This feature shows other Soldiers and resources within the area, allowing Soldiers and Family & Friends to connect with each other and support resources. Location services are voluntary, and users can opt-in or opt-out at any time Locations are generalized within 6 to 10 miles and the app does not store location information, provide directions or share it with any other applications, ensuring the safety and security of users.

Double Eagle App
Frequently Asked Questions

Collapse All Expand All
The Double Eagle App is the official United States Army Reserve mobile interface. The primary purpose of the Double Eagle App is to increase Soldier Readiness by providing a secure platform for Soldiers to engage with each other and the command. The app was born out of LTG Luckey’s desire to help Soldiers get to know each other better and belief that improving connection and communication between Soldiers would strengthen the Force and improve Readiness. The app can be used anytime, anywhere in the world to connect with fellow Soldiers, access key Army Reserve resources or catch up on the latest Army Reserve news.

The dashboard is essentially the home page of the app. It displays the most recent articles, polls, fitness challenges and houses the Nearby Members and the Leader Book features. Users can also access and change their settings from here, including rank and unit information and notification and location settings.

The News Feed of the Double Eagle App is the resource for Army Reserve articles and polls. The articles are visible to the general public, but only select Soldiers have the ability to upload new articles and only account holders can see and participate in polls. The primary purpose of polls is to engage Soldiers directly around particular issues.

The Channels feature is the messaging tool of the Double Eagle App that allows Soldiers to communicate directly with other Soldiers, unit leaders and important resources such as Family Readiness and Suicide Prevention. This will allow Soldiers to connect with people they may not have the opportunity to meet or speak to otherwise, fostering a greater feeling of community.

The Nearby feature aims to connect Soldiers to other Soldiers and resources within a set radius by allowing them to opt-in to share a general location using the app. Locations are generalized within 6 to 10 miles and the app does not store location information, provide directions or share it with any other applications, ensuring the safety and security of Soldiers. Some potential uses for this feature include messaging another Soldier to meet for a run, networking with other Soldiers and Families in the area and finding and accessing key resources when immediate support is required.


The Challenge tool is a new, exciting tool to prepare Soldiers physically for the demands of service. It allows Soldiers to take part in fitness challenges put forth by the Army Reserve and test their physical Readiness. Soldiers can also use the Army Physical Fitness Test calculator to measure their fitness against the Army Physical Fitness Test. These tools take the guesswork out of physical preparation and provide a new and exciting way for Soldiers to track and improve their physical fitness without relying on third-party resources. Additionally, Soldiers can compete against each other in challenges, adding another level of motivation to train.

Aside from increasing Readiness and connecting Soldiers, the Double Eagle App has two additional use options for those not in the Army Reserve: guest access and family & friend accounts.

  • Guests can be any member of the general public who downloads the app. They do not need an account and cannot create one. Guests can access select articles and the Resources tab.
  • Family & Friends can create accounts as long as a Soldier verifies them with their .mil email.
