3 Status of National Guard Soldiers: M-DAY, AGR, ADOS 32

  1. M-DAY: Typical National Guard Soldier - Serving one weekend a month, 2 weeks a year.

  2. AGR: You're working for National Guard for your state, but you are on active duty. Once you get in, you can serve 20+ years. You get active pay, plus BAH. But, however, you don't get paid for your drills. You only get active pay, not active pay + drill pay. So basically you go to drill for free.

  3. Active Duty Operational Support (ADOS): Similar to AGR, but you are limited to 3 years at a time. After 3 years, you have to take a mandatory 30 days break. Also, you need to renew your contract every year. Your working years as an ADOS count towards your active retirement. When you're on ADOS order, you will get full BAH along with other active duty benefits.

  4. State Active Duty (SAD) Order: You'll be on SAD order whenever you are called in to duty by the state (by the governor). On SAD order, your pay will be different than your normal military pay.
