I would like to let you know about 2 web sites. They are both from Army Human Recourses Command but they apply to all services. The first is a retirement calculator this will do the math that SFC Stephen P. gave for you and the second is information about the NDAA for 2008 which authorized early retirement pay (not other retirement benefits) for being called up while in the Reserves or National Guard.
The NDAA for 2008 reduces the retirement age for Reserve Component (RC) Soldiers from 60 to a lesser age, but not below age 50, for those who have served on Active Duty (AD) in an eligible status on or after 29 Jan 08.

Well first off it is not 30 years for the Guard/Reserve. It is still 20 years. The points you earn for (active/guard/reserve) are totaled up and multiplied by a %factor based on the number of years served TOTAL. That and your pay grade at retirement determine your retired pay. I have over 6700 points and will get about $3100 a month at age 60. Don't get me started on that tangent. still gripes me that it has never changed since 1949.

Years are calculated by the total points/360.

One point for every day of active duty. One point for training assembly (a week end is four) And as said some points for correspondence courses. Good luck.

Active to RC:
1 day of active duty = 1 retirement point (points also awarded for inactive duty, correspondence courses, and membership)
50 retirement points in a year is a qualifying year for non-regular retirement.
20 qualifying years authorizes non-regular retirement at age 60.

For RC to AC:
Subtract all and only active duty points from the date of accession to adjust the BASD. Inactive duty points are only factored in with the percentage at retirement.

Basic formula (for regular and non-regular retirement):
Average of the highest 36 months of base pay (for most of us anyway) X retirement points / 365 * 2.5%
