Reserve Training

Reserve training was limited by law. Reservists were eligible for periodic temporary callup to active duty for training. But reserve soldiers were not required to train more than two months in any year or more than six months total during their entire reserve obligation. Officers were not required to train more than twelve months during their obligation. All reservists remained subject to periodic training until the last five years of their obligation. They were compensated for wages forfeited during temporary active duty. Failure to respond to a callup without a proper waiver was a criminal offense prosecuted in military courts. Reservists could be arrested and tried for crimes or breaches of military discipline while in an active-duty status.
