How to Get Active Duty Orders (National Guard & Reserves)

Updated on April 30, 2017

Title

Intro

Did you just join the Army or Air Force National Guard or Reserves and want to quickly get back on Active Duty? Are you currently working part time in the military and would like to work full time? If you said yes to either one of these questions then this step by step guide will show you how you can obtain ADOS orders.

ADOS stand for Active Duty for Operational Support and can be given to Army soldiers and Air Force Airmen for different period of times ranging from one month to 12 months or more. Some ADOS orders may be deployment orders, like Afghanistan or Kuwait, or orders that would station you abroad, like Germany or Korea.

If you are selected for ADOS orders and your orders last for more than 30 days, you will be entitled you Active Duty Army benefits that can be found here. If your orders last for 90 days or more, you will be entitled to the Post 9/11 Chapter 33 G.I. Bill. Post 9/11 benefits can be found here. Another benefit is full PCS from your hometown to your new unit of assignment.

I suggest doing your research on PCS moves and your Active Duty benefits before the start of your orders so that you don't miss out on any of your benefits.

Before you apply for any of the ADOS orders or COADOS, make sure you have the following in order:

  • Pass Physical Test
  • No FLAGS
  • Inform your NCO
  • Recommendation letter from your CO
  • Security clearance(Secret or Top Secret)

*****************************************

00D, 00F, 00G are Immaterial MOSs.

Immaterial means any MOS can apply and on-the-job training will be available.

*****************************************

You can apply for positions that are one rank below and two ranks higher than your current rank.

I.e.

A SPC can apply for PFC, SPC, SGT, and SSG positions.
