In addition to one weekend of drill per month, members of the Reserves must perform a minimum of 14 days of active duty training per year. Members of the National Guard are required to perform 15 days of training per year.

Note: Guard/Reserve members are normally credited with 4 days pay for a weekend duty. The below chart shows the monthy base pay, based upon the normal requirements of one weekend per month.

When performing active duty other than weekend drills, Guard/Reserve members receive 1/30th of monthly active duty pay for each day served on active duty.
