How do AGR positions work?
An AGR position is an Active Guard/Reserve Position. An AGR position is a full-time military position. An AGR is similar to an ART because they are both full-time jobs. However, they differ because an AGR position places you on active duty orders, making you a full-time active duty member during your tour.
Is AGR the same as active duty?
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.
Do you get BAH If you’re AGR?
Army National Guard Soldiers on active duty under Title 10 USC are eligible for Basic Allowance for Housing or Basic Allowance for Housing Reserve Component/Transit (BAH RC/T) if they are on active duty for 30 or fewer days.
Do AGR get deployed?
# 4 Limited Deployments: AGR Soldiers can deploy, but it doesn’t happen much unless the whole unit deploys. And compared to most Active Duty Soldiers who have deployed two or more times, many AGR Soldiers have never deployed at all. Of course, if you want to deploy you can simply volunteer.
How long do AGR positions last?
A typical AGR tour is around 3 years. A deployment could make that longer. Some might even get lucky and have their tour extended (but from my understanding, that’s pretty rare). If your soldier is an officer, you’re looking at a PCS every 2 years, and sometimes more frequently.
Can you resign from AGR?
All AGR Soldiers must submit written requests for voluntary separation (resignation) or retirement from the AGR Program, through supervisory channels, to the AGR Office (NGOH-HRO-M). The AGR Office processes requests in accordance with applicable regulations, policies and procedures to the separation authority.
