  • Question about National Guard Active Duty

    Originally posted by VTguard View Post
    There are several types of active duty in the National Guard. Here's a brief rundown of the differences:

    IADT (Initial Active Duty for Training) - This includes Basic Combat Training (BCT) and Advanced Individual Training (AIT)

    ADT (Active Duty for Training) - This includes any additional resident courses that you may take after AIT (ie: Airborne, Air Assault, NCO Schools, MOSQ Courses, ect)

    AT (Annual Training) - This yearly training is typically 15 days but can be up to 30 days depending on the training to be done. It can be just a couple of weeks in the Armory, working with other units to conduct joint training, or even an overseas training mission. ATs depend on the type of unit you are assigned to and the funding available for training in your state.

    ADSW (Active Duty for Special Work) - This is a state funded active duty for special assignments. Orders are temporary and for a specified period of time. Duties can range from assisting with recruiting to working with your unit to accomplish a specific duty. The length of the orders varries.

    AGR (Active Guard Reserve or Title 32) - This is a full-time permanent job with the National Guard. Most of the time, there is a vaccancy posted, and you must apply for it and often interview for the position. The posting often specifies a specific MOS and/or rank that the position requires.

    Tech (Military Technician or Dual Status Mil-Tech) - Is usually a GS scale position or similar pay scale position separate from your traditional Guard (M-day) position. During the work week, you are paid as a technician (civilian pay) and you also may attend Drill weekends, and get paid for that as well. Technician pay does not include housing allowance like other Active Duty positions.

    Title 10 Activation (Federal Active Duty) - This is the status when you are activated for a federal mission. This includes deployments under Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF) Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF - Afghanistan), Border Security missions, and similar activations. This time counts as federal active service exactly the same as Active Duty Army.

    Hopefully, this helps clear things up.
    What title is UTAs and AT considered?

    Re: Just a little more explanation

    Lt:

    UTA's are IADT, and AT is Title 32.

    Gary: A Chief Master Sergeant (AF E-9) with 16 years time in service (that's fast to make E-9) makes
    $681.08 per drill weekend or $170 per UTA. His dual status as a technician has little to do with his Guard rank. Many Technician positions (GS and WG scale) are in some ways tied to a particular "rank" catagory. For example, you wouldn't normally see a CMS working as a GS 5....although, I assume it is possible. The technician job is largely independant of his or her MDAY position. If you want to ASSUME the Chief Master in your question is a GS 9 his annual pay would be $47,448 - 61,678 per year depending on his step. Add that to his or her roughly $11,500 annual pay as a Guardsman for an annual total of 59,000 - $73,000. This is a fair amount lower than the estimated $86,720.88 he would make on Title 32 or Title 10.
