  5. loveisguilty asks: How long is the contract for National Guard? And what does the pay look like monthly?

    Your total enlistment period will be eight years, but you can serve as little as three or six years, and spend the remainder in IRR (Individual Ready Reserve). IRR Soldiers don’t train with a unit, but can still be called up in the event of an emergency.  Your total income is a combination of several things: monthly paycheck, enlistment bonuses, cash incentives, benefits such as medical and retirement, education funding and other benefits. If you go to the National Guard website you can click on benefits, scroll down and on the right hand side of the screen is a pay calculator you can use to determine what your pay will be.
