I am an AFROTC scholarship recipient, and will be a freshman in the fall. I have never read anything about reserve service in all of my research in regards to Air Force ROTC, but rather that one incurs a minimum of 4 years Active-Duty obligation upon commissioning. However, in recent emails with a member of the cadre at the school I'll be attending, they stated that I will incur a 4 year AD obligation, and an additional 4 year Reserve service obligation. It surprises me that I have not read anything about this additional Reserve service. Is this accurate? Also - they mentioned that I will have to "enlist" in the Obligated Reserve Service at my contracting appointment. What exactly is this? I thought I had properly done my research but apparently that is not the case.
