I am a Reservist

Navigate civilian and military life with resources, support and tools, all easily accessible no matter where you live.

As a reservist, you have one foot in the military community and one in the civilian world. The Defense Department and Military OneSource offer resources, tools and support to help you navigate both, even if you live far from an installation.

Find information about joining the military as a reservist and transitioning to the reserve component from active duty. Explore the benefits available to you, including part-time pay, skills training, health care coverage and more. As a member of the reserve, you are also eligible for support and services from Military OneSource, such as financial counseling, stress management and non-medical counseling.
