Pay Grades:

If you choose to serve in the Guard/Reserve, you will earn what’s called Drill Pay. Drill Pay is money you earn while training on weekends and during full-time training events.

You are compensated hourly for work completed. Your wages will increase when you climb in rank and years of experience (many newly enlisted servicemembers enter the Guard/Reserve as a private).

For training events longer than a weekend, you are given prorated Basic Pay. Guard/Reserve members are normally credited with 4 days active duty pay for a weekend duty. Our Drill Pay charts show the monthy drill pay, based upon the normal requirements of one weekend of drill duty per month.

Every loan is backed by a 15-day, no-cost return policy. If for any reason you are not completely satisfied, you can cancel your loan within 15 days at no cost–guaranteed.
