When you decide to join the Navy Reserve you are making a commitment to yourself as well as your country. Before you enlist,
is best to contact your local Navy Reserve recruiter to discuss the length of your service commitment.
Will I be able to train close to home?
Generally speaking, your training will take place at the Navy Reserve unit located closest to your home base. However, if you serve in a specialized field you may have to train and serve at a different site.
Will I be deployed?
There is no “yes or no” answer to this question. When you serve as a reservist in the military there is always the chance that you will be deployed – there is no way of saying what the future holds. Whether or not you are deployed is based on the needs of the military. As you know, this can change at a moment’s notice.
I want to talk to a Navy Reserve recruiter without obligation. Is this possible?
Meeting with a Navy Reserve recruiter is a great idea. This gives you the chance to ask questions and receive valuable advice. You are not under any obligation to sign a contract during your meeting. It makes good sense to meet with a recruiter, review all the necessary information, and then make a decision based on your findings.
