Thanks in advance for all the helpful posts so far. Ok, so my recruiter told me at first that I couldn't be deployed from residency if I joined the Reserves and took STRAP and HPLRP. I told him that I wasn't interested in STRAP, just HPLRP. He said if that were the case, then I could technically be deployed while in residency and that STRAP protected me from that. I can't find any reference to this online. Is this indeed the case? Thanks.
