Question about IRR vs. active reserves: How real is the threat of getting called in from IRR, especially if you are actively in a civilian residency? I'm sure it *can* happen, but does it actually? I'm leaving AD next year and will hopefully be in a civilian residency program and was going to go IRR, but I'm hearing some horror stories about people getting called off of IRR. Is it better to find a unit that is stabilizing and just go active reserves? If so, how do you handle drilling, etc?

I've been out about two years now and the only thing I've had to do for IRR was call a career counselor once or twice and update my address on the HRC website.

So, this is what I had -always- thought. Then, an acquaintance of mine got out - civilian residency, 4 years active, and then cut him loose. Entirely. I dunno if they screwed up, or what the situation was.
