Active Guard Reserve

Active Guard Reserve

Active Guard Reserve (abbreviated AGR) refers to the United States Army federal military program which places Army National Guard and Army Reserve soldiers on federal active duty status to provide full-time support to National Guard and Reserve organizations for the purpose of organizing, administering, recruiting, instructing, or training the Reserve Components. [ [http://www.dtic.mil/doctrine/jel/doddict/data/a/00042.html JP 1-02, DOD Dictionary of Military and Associated Terms] ] Soldiers in such status are also commonly referred to as AGR's. Although they continue to be members of the reserve components, they are in a different federal status than reserve component members called to active duty for training or mobilized for contingency operations, and they also receive the same benefits and entitlements enjoyed by active component military personnel.

Certain units with critical stateside missions, such as the Western Air Defense Sector, have been converted from regular active duty personnel to "all AGR" in order to provide more consistent manning. [ [http://wads.washingtonairguard.com/Mission.htm Western Air Defense Sector - Our Mission] ]
