2009 National Guard and Military Reserves Drill Pay


Members of the National Guard and military reserve componants are required to perform a minimum of one weekend drill per month, and two weeks per year of active duty for training. In exchange for drill, Guard/Reserve members receive monthly drill pay, which is equal to one day's active duty base pay for each drill period. Generally, there are four drill periods in one weekend drill.

The charts linked below show monthly Guard/Reserve drill pay, assuming one weekend drill per month.
