I understand that long days, TDYs, deployments are part of the game. I get it, and I (and my family, frankly) don't mind executing that for valid reasons.
"These CBTs must be done for the third time this year so we all look really current for the next exercise" is not a valid reason.

Do you know where to go to get more info on this? My wife hits 20 next month and is ready to go but she has mentioned that she wouldn't be opposed to doing some IRR stuff for points. We are going to join CAP anyway (Went to our first meeting last week......I know, flame away) so that would be good if she could get some points too.

All (I think) of the FEMA courses will get you points, too.

For an airline guy it has its perks... And for an Enlisted Aircrew it does too, you can work staff jobs on orders, no supervisor approval etc... However, the AD unit will be your supervising agent, for OPR, EPR once they cut orders for you, but you still belong to AFRC. You do loose your flight pay unless you have met your gates, I believe. It is a good deal like I said, and alot of guys down it because some say it is for points only, which is not true. If you are on orders you get paid just like everyone else does, and it also adds to your retirement. PM me for more info... Yes you can volunteer for as much orders as you want too. I know Cat E's that have been on AD for years. I think it is one of those best kept secrets, and it is unfunded so no chance of being cut...

Check with your unit... for most of our reservists we had them do a 40A and attach the cert and submit it to their unit.
