Please ID This Subdued Unit Patch: Individual Ready Reserve

Recommended Posts

I realized too late in my career it was the best deal the Army had to offer. No Reserve unit duties (which were almost as bad as being in an Active Duty unit), and often you could pick when and where you wanted to serve, and still earn retirement points and base privileges. I got a 3 week stint at a headquarters in Japan before I got out. You couldn't beat it, but you were liable to be called up and sent anywhere at the pleasure of the Army in the case of conflict.
