The Issue

As Congress considers Department of Defense recommendations to streamline and consolidate Reserve Component duty statuses, it is critical National Guard and Reserve servicemembers receive equitable benefits similar to the Active Component for the same missions performed.

Recommendation

Ensure the new, streamlined military duty status structure:

  • Provides equitable benefits for Reserve Component servicemembers
  • Does not remove benefits Reserve Component servicemembers currently receive
  • Retains state abilities to swiftly deploy National Guard personnel in response to domestic emergencies
