In this episode, we discuss some of the differences between serving in Active Duty, the National Guard, and the Army Reserves.
Every component of the Armed Forces brings with it unique challenges which soldiers must deal with. In Active Duty, being a soldier 24/7 with constant field time, Deployment Readiness requirements, and constant monitoring can create a very stressful environment for soldiers. On the other hand, being a Reserve or Guard soldier typically entails juggling two separate professional lives which can be just as stressful and difficult for soldiers to maintain.
We wanted to touch on a few of these points in this podcast and convey our own experiences in juggling these completely different environments in which a soldier may be serving.
