Hi all - I am prior service veteran with ~ 7 years active duty that ended 9 years ago. Lately I was thinking about joining the reserves. I know it is an active time for the reserves with many units called up and sent to Iraq/ Afghanistan and that doesn't bother me. Its finances that concerns me more if I were to be deployed for a year. I just built a house about a year ago and my income can't really be less than what I make now (about $50K/yr) if I want to keep my house. I talked to a recruiter today and he said I would enter as an E5 and make about $240 per wekend drill. Any idea what I would make if I were activated? Second any intel vets on the board have any experience with the Reserves MIAD program?
