    I received a 3 year army scholarship for college. I sign my contract next year but I'm a little confused about the commitment. All of the army websites say that the scholarship requires you to serve 4 years active duty followed by Inactive Ready Reserves. I really want to move to Los Angeles after I graduate and work a business career while also serving in the army reserves. Can I serve my obligation only through Reserves or do I have to do active duty at some point? Also can I serve Reserves in any state I want even though I was under a scholarship? Thanks!

    Seems like your question was answered pretty clearly in your previous thread.

    Please accept this as constructive commentary.

    Even if you get reserves...you CAN be called up ANYTIME! If you want the benefits of a scholarship, at some point the needs of your country have to come first.

    I don't quite understand the multiple posts on trying to navigate the "fine print" about being able to remain a reservist and avoid AD.

    If you aren't willing to serve active duty when called, then you should simply not accept the scholarship.
