The Commissioning paperwork only says 8 year commitment in the Reserves, but doesn't specify how that time is broken up. Thanks in advance!

From my understanding, all initial contracts are for 8 years. If you don’t do at least 3 years active duty, you will spend the entire 8 years as an obligated reservist. If you completed 3 years active then you have the option of serving the remaining time as active reservist or inactive reservist.

Thank you, my situation is a little different in that I'm commissioning as an active reservist and just wanted to get an idea of how many years I'm committing to monthly drills, annual training, and whatever else may come my way.

Pretty much locked in to 8 years. Of service your mix of IRR is determined by your contract. Any reason why going IRR and just making contract is important?

Review page three of your NGB 62E. If your service time had been partitioned, you will find the specifics on that page. Otherwise, the requirement is typically an eight-year active membership unless an unqualified resignation is submitted and approved.

Good catch. In that case, if there is nothing stipulated in your iPerms record, everything else applies. SP5 Peter Keane

I don’t believe AGR is part of the obligation. Active or Inactive Reserve participation is the requirements. Contact the commands Retention NCO and obtain information to resolve your needs.
