Troop Program Units

TPUs are the heart and soul of the Army Reserve!

Unlike active duty, Army Reserve Soldiers serve part time, allowing them to earn an extra paycheck, go to school, or work a civilian job while still maintaining many of the benefits of military service.

These men and women typically train on selected weekends and perform annual training which typically is 2 weeks long.

You will spend one weekend a month on duty and two weeks a year in training.

Soldiers in the Army Reserve may be called to active duty to provide their expertise.

Your total service length in the Army Reserve may range from three to six years, depending on your Army Reserve job.
