My time in the Army Reserve was about as good as I could have hoped it would be. I was in a good unit with good people. There was a 5K signing bonus. I deployed once to OCONUS for about a year, but not to any hostile fire zone. I would have gone anywhere, but that is just how the cookie crumbles. We had GREAT AT every year: Korea 2x, Germany, and Thailand for Cobra Gold.

By the time I hit 6 years, my civilian career was in full swing and I decided to bounce. I never got called during my IRR but I expected to, and would have if called. Overall it was a pretty great experience.
