The below requirements reflect the minimum days of participation required to be a Reservist.
Category A: Traditional Reservist
You become the chaplain to a group of Reservists, who, like you, serve one weekend per month and two weeks per year. Chaplains are also eligible for short tours to augment the active duty.
Category B: Individual Mobilization Augmentee
Instead of being the chaplain to a group of Reservists, you will become an asset to an active duty chapel staff, serving a minimum of 24 days per year, divided as follows: 12 consecutive days and 12 individual days scattered throughout the year. These days are served according to the needs of your chapel while considering your civilian ministry calendar.
