Active Guard Reserve (AGR) Soldiers serve full-time and enjoy the same benefits as Active Duty Soldiers.
With an Active Guard Reserve job, you receive full pay, medical care for you and your family, and the opportunity for retirement after 20 years of active service.
Active Guard Reserve Soldiers are stationed at thousands of Army Reserve units throughout the United States.
AGR Soldiers serve full-time on Active Duty in units and organizations of the Army Reserve, or that directly support the Army Reserve.
The Active Guard Reserve program allows Soldiers transitioning off active duty the opportunity to compete for AGR positions closer to home.
