AIR FORCE RESERVE

AIR NATIONAL GUARD

JUDGE ADVOCATES & PARALEGALS

Judge advocates are often called "JAGs." The moniker is drawn from the name of our highest ranking attorney, who is called The Judge Advocate General. The Air Force's legal community, as a whole, is known as The Judge Advocate General's Corps.

Attention Active Duty JAGs and Paralegals: For smoothest transition to the ARC, we encourage you to apply to the Air Reserve Component/Air National Guard up to 6 months prior to your DOS.


What are the annual duty requirements for each Reserve Component? Traditional Reserve (aka “Category A” or “Cat A”) – Two concurrent weeks of Annual Training (AT) at a unit located at a Reserve base plus one weekend a month with that unit on regularly scheduled weekends. (Federal Mission) Individual Mobilization Augmentee (aka “IMA” or “Cat B”) – The most flexible and individualized component. Two concurrent weeks of Annual Training (AT) plus twelve days of duty. All duty is performed at an Active Duty base during an ordinary work week. (Federal Mission) Air National Guard (ANG) – Two concurrent weeks of Annual Training (AT) at your ANG unit plus one weekend a month with that unit on regularly scheduled weekends.
