The Army is the most powerful and sophisticated military force in the world.

This force consists of two groups: active duty Soldiers and Army Reserve Soldiers.

The difference between the active Army and the 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.
