The U.S. Army is the most powerful and sophisticated military force in the world and Army Reserve is one of three components in the U.S. Army.

What is the difference between the active Army and Army Reserve?
Active duty is similar to working at a full-time job with the Army. The Army Reserve allows you to pursue a civilian career or attend college full-time and still serve your community and country.

What is the Army Reserve?
You can live where you want, receive medical benefits, educational benefits, tuition assistance, and build for retirement. 
In the Army Reserve, you can continue your career or education while training close to home and standing ready to serve with your valuable job skills.
Boaz came to the United States from Kenya with one bag in his hand, and a big dream. Because of his education scholarships, he wanted to give back to a country that had been so benevolent to him. Joining the Army Reserve helped him balance giving back to his country, while still advancing himself on the civilian side in his career. Video by Tim Yao
