(8) Waiver statement for exceeding 180 days of ADSW or ADSW and TTAD combined within an FY. When applicable, orders will contain the following statement in "Additional Instruction"
(9) Waiver. An ADSW order requires a waiver if ADSW is scheduled in the first 2 months of the FY and the soldier has not had a break of 60 continuous calendar days following the last day of an ADSW tour or TTAD in the previous FY. This waiver of the 60-day break rule is needed only when the soldier has accumulated more than 30 days of ADSW, TTAD, or any combination of ADSW and TTAD totaling over 30 days during the last quarter of the previous FY. If waived, the following statement will be placed in "Additional Instructions"

f. Individual instructions. Orders issuing authorities will furnish an information sheet containing travel, transportation, and other pertinent information with each soldier's IADT, ADT, AT, and ADSW orders. A letter of instructions ( app B ), which may be modified or supplemented, will be used by the orders issuing authority as a guide in preparing local information sheets.
g. Security clearance. Order issuing authority will place the appropriate security clearance on the IADT (when available), ADT, AT, or ADSW order. Gaining command will verify security clearance of the ARNGUS or USAR soldier with the order issuing authority's security manager per AR 380-5 , paragraph 7-100.

Soldiers residing within commuting distance of the reporting duty site are not entitled to travel time from their home to the first duty station. This also applies from the duty station to their home. These soldiers will begin travel and be entitled to receive pay on the same date as the reporting date shown on their orders. The date on which pay begins will not be earlier than the reporting date. The installation or activity commander will determine commuting distance on the basis of local practice, distance, travel time, and available modes of transportation.
The date of entry on duty will not be shown on orders. It will be determined by the installation or activity commander at the initial station of attachment as stated in this regulation and DODPM. (A first day of training date will be shown on AT orders to assist installation commanders in computing the number of days the soldier is required to train.)
a. Unless residing within commuting distance, the date of entry on duty is the date the soldier officially begins travel.
b. For a soldier residing within commuting distance, the date of entry will be the same as the reporting date shown on the orders. These soldiers are not authorized to report for duty earlier than the reporting date shown on their orders.
The reporting date will be specified in orders and will not be amended after the soldier begins travel en route to the duty station. Deviations will be treated as follows:
a. A soldier who is absent after the directed reporting date, will be considered absent without leave (AWOL) unless excused as unavoidable (AR 630-5 and AR 630-10 ).
b. A soldier reporting earlier than the directed reporting date, and in excess of authorized travel time, will be in a nonduty, nonpay status. The soldier will not be accepted for duty unless the orders issuing authority agrees to amend the orders to show an earlier reporting date.
The date of release from duty will not be shown on the orders. The release date will be determined at the last duty station based on travel time allowed for returning home. A soldier residing within commuting distance will be relieved from duty on the final day of AT, ADT or ADSW.

c. Voluntary ADT.
(1) Eligibility. Requests for training from IMA personnel "in lieu of AT" or as an "additional tour" may be submitted if such training increases military proficiency or is a requirement for a promotion. Applicants must meet the ADT qualification requirements of chapter 4 . An IMA who is also a USARF school student will be authorized an additional tour of ADT to attend AT with the USARF school, provided funds are available. This AT will be in addition to the required AT with his or her IMA proponent agency.
(2) Application. Prepare applications for ADT using DA Form 1058-R (Application for Active Duty for Training, Active Duty for Special Work, Temporary Tour of Active Duty, and Annual Training for Soldiers of the Army National Guard and U.S. Army Reserve). Instructions are outlined in paragraph 4-7 . Submit to the IMA proponent agency for approval or disapproval. Agencies will comment on the adequacy of the request as it relates to the soldier's mobilization assignment. Approval or disapproval will be recommended and the request will be sent to ARPERCEN for review and publications of orders for those approved. Requests for additional ADT to attend AT with a USARF school to satisfy promotion requirements need not be submitted through the IMA proponent agency.
a. Each participant in the Health Professions Scholarship Program (HPSP) ( AR 601-141 ) will perform 45 days of ADT at a military installation during each 12-month period. If an officer's schedule prevents him or her from leaving school, the ADT period may be performed at the professional school. In addition, the officer is required to participate in military training as prescribed by The Surgeon General.
b. Participants will be assigned to USAR Control Group (Officer Active Duty Obligor (OADO)).
c. Annual ADT will be performed in the pay grade of O-1 regardless of the grade the participant holds. While performing ADT, the officer is entitled to full pay and allowances as a second lieutenant.

(1) By reason of a physical disability incurred while on AD as a participant of HPSP.
(2) Computation of service creditable for pay under 37 USC 205(a)(7) and (8) that provides for medical, osteopathic, and dental graduates is no longer applicable. After 14 September 1981, the crediting of constructive service for medical or dental training or internship is not authorized. (See DODPM, para 10102 for savings provision for awarding of constructive service.)
e. The Commander, U.S. Army Health Professional Support Agency (SGPS-PD), 5 Skyline Place, 5111 Leesburg Pike, Falls Church, VA 22041-3258, as the designated representative of The Surgeon General will select personnel to participate in the HPSP and furnish CG, ARPERCEN, individual assignment instructions.
f. CG, ARPERCEN will maintain personnel records and issue annual ADT orders.
a. Involuntary AT for IRR soldiers is authorized for those persons with skills that require periodic refresher training to remain current and the skill would be needed during the first 30 days of mobilization. Such duty will be performed on AT orders for a period of duty of no more than 15 consecutive days in any 1 fiscal year.
b. The procedures in chapter 4 apply when IRR soldiers volunteer for AT. Such duty will be performed on ADT orders.
c. The CG, TRADOC will identify those skills requiring refresher training to retain proficiency.
d. The CG, ARPERCEN will identify and select IRR soldiers for involuntary AT as necessary to assure skill proficiency.
Soldiers not scheduled for mandatory or voluntary training may be required to perform a minimum of 2 hours of muster duty each FY to accomplish annual screening requirements.
a. This chapter applies to ARNGUS and USAR soldiers who volunteer for ADT. ARNGUS soldiers who seek to participate in full-time training sponsored by an Active Army or USAR unit, training center, school, or activity will be ordered to a period of ADT to complete such training. The procedures in this chapter do not apply to HPSP students or Reserve of the Army Medical, Osteopathic, Dental, or Veterinary (MODV) Student Commissioning Program participants on ADT.
b. The primary purpose and content of ADT is training. Benefit to the organization conducting the training is incidental. ADT will not be used to meet real or perceived manpower shortages to perform organizational missions or administration, or to augment the Active Army. (See para 6-2 for further clarification of when a tour of ADSW may be more appropriate.)

a. When ADT quotas or spaces are limited, priority for selecting soldiers will be given to those who have the most Ready Reserve service remaining and can derive increased benefits from the training in skill enhancement and advancement.
b. The requested ADT should directly contribute to maintaining or improving proficiency in a soldier's primary MOS (PMOS), secondary MOS (SMOS), SSI(AOC), or a designated military skill.
c. State AGs, area commanders, or the CG, ARPERCEN, will determine if the requested training will benefit the service.
d. Unit members selected for ADT tours will be retained in their unit of assignment. (They will not be required to perform scheduled IDT or AT with their assigned unit during the ADT period.)
e. Officers and warrant officers must have a favorable National Agency Check or valid SECRET clearance. A higher clearance may be required.
a. ADT tours are planned and organized for development of the individual soldier through--
(1) AT. . (See chap 3 for required AT.)
(2) Readiness training (for IRR soldiers only). These tours provide specialty related training. The soldier is attached to an Active Army, ARNGUS, or USAR unit for specific career enhancing duty in a specialty required for mobilization. Readiness training with an ARNGUS or USAR unit is limited to one period of ADT in an FY. The soldier is attached to the ARNGUS or USAR unit to participate with the unit on AT.
(3) Training as a resident student at DA or TRADOC approved regular, associate, and service schools (refresher courses), area schools, unit schools, officer candidate schools, noncommissioned officer academies and other installations that provide training applicable to the soldier's assignment. (There is no restriction on a soldier's participation in a course of instruction due to course length; however, reporting requirements of paragraph 1-7 apply if the ADT period will result in the soldier exceeding 180 days of ADT within an FY.)

(6) The unit commander will certify the accuracy of the tour history provided by a TPU soldier by signing item 34 of the DA Form 1058-R. The purpose of this requirement is to ensure the accuracy of the number of days of active duty a soldier accumulates. ADT tour day totals will not exceed limits established by this regulation ( paras 4-1d and 4-3 ). (Note: For ADSW tours scheduled within the first 2 months of an FY, the tour history certified by the commander will show that the soldier has met the 60-day break requirement of chap 6 .)
c. DA Form 1058-R time limit. Submit DA Form 1058-R to the order issuing headquarters to arrive at least 45 days before the start date of the tour. This is to ensure timely issuance of orders.
(1) When circumstances prevent a soldier from submitting a DA Form 1058-R by the above time limit, a thorough explanation must accompany the application. Under these conditions, DARNG or ARPERCEN, as appropriate, may accept requests by message or telephone. Such Requests must be made at least 5 working days before the start date of the tour. These requests will be confirmed by a properly completed follow-up DA Form 1058-R. Other orders issuing authorities may establish their own time limits for late applications.
(2) Late applications for ADT will not be approved except under extenuating circumstances. (Applications misplaced or delayed are not considered good reasons.) There is no guarantee orders will be issued or payment made to those soldiers who perform duty in good faith without orders under the assumption that orders will be forthcoming.

a. NPS males under age 26 enlisted in the ARNGUS or USAR will be ordered to IADT for the period required to qualify in the selected MOS, or training sufficient to be deployed. NPS males under age 26 must serve on IADT for a period not less than 12 weeks.
b. Personnel identified in paragraph 5-1a(4) will be ordered to IADT for the period required to become qualified in the MOS for which enlisted, or training sufficient to be deployed.
a. ROTC cadets are enlisted under 10 USC 12103(a) . Completion of training in one of the categories listed in (1) through (5) below is required for entry into the ROTC advanced course ( AR 145-1 ). Since the officer trainee will be required to complete OBC on commissioning, basic training (BT) will not be required of this soldier. However, if the soldier is not commissioned, is retained in service, and has not previously completed an IADT period of not less than 12 weeks or its equivalent, this period of IADT or its equivalent, is required.
(1) Completed BT during prior military service.
(2) Successfully completed 3 or more years of Junior ROTC. (Based on a letter of acceptance from the professor of military science (PMS) at the college or university attended as credit placement for advanced ROTC.)
(3) Attend a service academy for 1 year.
(4) Successfully completed Military Science II.
(5) Successfully completed ROTC Basic Camp.
b. Officer trainees in the following categories will be ordered to active duty for training for the period required to qualify in an MOS on the automated unit vacancy list:
(1) A soldier enlisted directly for participation in the SMP and who does not apply for enrollment in the advanced ROTC course within 1 year following enlistment.
(2) An officer trainee who is disenrolled or fails to complete advanced ROTC. This includes soldiers listed in ( a ) through ( c ) below. These soldiers will be treated in the same manner as ROTC and SMP participants who fail to complete advanced ROTC ( AR 601-210 ).
(a) Soldiers who agreed to volunteer for the Early Commissioning Program and do not volunteer.
(b) Soldiers who refuse to accept a commission when tendered.
(c) Soldiers who are not tendered a commission.
a. NPS enlistees in ARNGUS or USAR units will normally be ordered to IADT within 270 days of enlistment. NPS direct enlistees in the IRR must enter IADT within 180 days after date of enlistment. NPS enlistees may be authorized an additional period of delay from reporting as provided in AR 601-25, paragraph 3-4 .
b. An enlisted soldier who cannot satisfactorily complete the MOS training for which selected will be required to accept training to qualify for an alternate MOS as determined by the ARNGUS or USAR unit commander ( AR 612-201 ). The training installation commander will coordinate through the appropriate Reserve Component Liaison NCO with the State AG or USAR unit commander to determine an alternative MOS. Soldiers will be reported according to AR 612-201.
a. Orders for ARNGUS enlistees are issued per NGR 310-10 .
b. Orders for USAR enlistees will be prepared by the MEPS per AR 310-10.
c. The TPU commander or designated representative will notify the USAREC Guidance Counselor NLT 4 months before Phase II movement of any enlistee who has been promoted since completion of Phase I training.
a. Active duty for special work (ADSW) is authorized for projects supporting ARNGUS and USAR programs such as--

It must be used for temporary projects or missions normally for not more than 139 days. Projects or missions for more than 139 days may be approved by HQDA or the MACOM on a case by case basis.
c. HQDA accounting and reporting requirements ( paras 1-6 and as appropriate, will be met if an ADSW tour will exceed 180 days or will result in a soldier accumulating over 180 days of ADSW or any combination of ADSW and TTAD totaling over 180 days within an FY.
d. Absent waiver according to paragraph 6-6a(7) , a soldier will not be ordered to an ADSW tour within the first 2 months of an FY unless there has been at least a 60 calendar day break from the last day of an ADSW or TTAD tour in the previous FY. This break is necessary only if the soldier has accumulated more than 30 days of ADSW and/or TTAD during the last quarter of the previous FY. (Short breaks in tours (30 days or less) to circumvent this requirement are not authorized.)
e. Tours are funded from ARNGUS or USAR personnel appropriations. ADSW orders will cite 10 USC 12301(d) as authority.
f. ADSW tours will be used sparingly and their need documented.
h. Approving authorities will retain tour documentation and justification for the current and previous FY.
i. When possible, tour position announcements will be given wide distribution to attract the best qualified applicants.
j. Unit soldiers performing ADSW tours will not be required to perform scheduled IDT or AT with their assigned unit during the ADSW period.
k. A USAR TPU soldier ordered to an ADSW tour exceeding 180 days or extended on an ADSW tour which if approved would result in the soldier being on the tour over 180 days may be reassigned to the IRR. The USAR unit commander will make the final determination on whether the soldier is reassigned to the IRR or is allowed to remain in the unit. If the decision is to reassign the soldier, the following action will be taken:
(1) DA Form 4651-R (Request for Reserve Component Assignment or Attachment) will be completed and submitted with the ADSW tour request or extension request.
(2) A statement signed by the soldier stating he or she is aware that reassignment to the IRR terminates incentives and entitlements according to AR 135-7 will be attached to the application when the tour exceeds 180 days or to the extension request when an approved tour extension would result in the soldier being on the tour over 180 days.
(3) End strength accounting and reporting will be according to paragraphs 1-6 and 1-7 .
ADSW is established to clearly distinguish between tours intended for the training of individual soldiers (ADT) and tours intended to accomplish ARNGUS and USAR work projects or missions (ADSW). ADSW and ADT are not interchangeable. Each has a distant purpose and funding authorization. ( Table 6-1 gives example of types of duty performed in ADT or ADSW status.) Before submitting a request for ADSW, use the following criteria to determine if the tour should be ADSW or ADT:
a. ADSW is in order when the purpose of the tour is not to provide skill training but to accomplish one of the ARNGUS and USAR missions listed in (1) through (7) below. (Whether or not a soldier's skills are enhanced is incidental.)
(1) Supporting or controlling an exercise.
(2) Performing site support (including training operation support).
(3) Working on a special short-term project or study group vital to the ARNGUS or USAR.
(4) Providing administrative support for ARNGUS and USAR related projects or organizations.
(5) Providing staff for USARF schools, Intelligence Training Army Area Schools, noncommissioned officer academies, Reserve training schools, etc., except those soldiers performing duty in their normal annual training status or in lieu of normal annual training.
(6) Staff visits.
(7) Supporting administration of marksmanship tournaments.
b. ADT is in order when the purpose of the tour is to provide the soldier with planned and organized training to acquire, maintain, or enhance a skill. (The benefit to the organization is incidental.)
c. Reserve component programs which are recurring, but which are not practical or cost-effective to hire full-time manpower (e.g., a two month board held once a year), may be accompanied on ADSW orders.
Only tours that meet the following criteria will be authorized:
a. Must be essential to the functioning of the ARNGUS or USAR.
b. Must be a temporary project or mission normally not more than 139 days. Tours extended beyond 180 days require approval per paragraph 1-8 .
c. Duties must exceed the scope of those performed by the Active Army in support of the ARNGUS and USAR. To perform such duties, the soldier must have--
(1) RC experience and background.
(2) First-hand knowledge of the ARNGUS or USAR.
d. AA, AGR, or DA civilian personnel (full-time staff members) who are qualified for the required duties are not available. (Note: This criterion is not intended to authorize the use of ADSW to fulfill the duties of an authorized TDA position which is currently vacant or when the incumbent is on extended periods of TDY or leave.)
e. These ADSW tours will be used as outlined in paragraph 6-2 . Active duty not specifically covered elsewhere in this regulation which is in support of the ARNGUS or USAR will be accomplished on ADSW orders.
a. Requests for approval of a project or mission to be completed by personnel serving on an ADSW tour of 30 days or less (excluding allowable travel time) will be initiated by the organization or agency which requires ADSW support. A memorandum will be submitted through command/or staff agency channels to the appropriate approving authority in paragraph 6-5 below. The request will provide the information in subparagraphs (1) through (3) below.
(1) A description of the project or mission and the action or directive which created the need for the project or mission. The request must also include a statement explaining why the project or mission is vital to the ARNGUS or USAR and why it cannot be completed by assigned Active Army, AGR, or DA civilian personnel.
(2) Name and location of the headquarters, staff agency, or office to which the soldier will be attached. Requesting activity will provide a complete reporting address to include building number (if appropriate), street address, city, state, zip code, and the Unit Identification Code (UIC) of the unit where the soldier is to report.
(3) If a by-name request is to be considered for the tour, a completed DA Form 1058-R must be attached to the request. If a by-name request is not being submitted, qualifications for the tour must be provided.
b. A memorandum prepared according to figure 6-1 will accompany requests for approval of a project or mission to be completed by personnel serving on an ADSW tour exceeding 30 days (excluding allowable travel time). The memorandum will be forwarded through command and/or staff agency channels to the appropriate approving authority in paragraph 6-5 below.
Requests for the approval of ADSW positions will be sent through command and/or staff agency channels to the appropriate approving authority shown in a through d below. Except as shown in b below, all approved requests for ADSW positions will be submitted to DARNG or CG, ARPERCEN, as appropriate, for the assignment of a qualified soldier and issuance of ADSW orders. To assist ARPERCEN in the assignment of a qualified IRR soldier to the position, a copy of the job description and tour justification must be submitted with the assignment request. To the extent possible and consistent with this and other regulations, by-name requests will be honored.
a. DARNG and CAR. DARNG and CAR may approve tour requests from MACOMs and agencies not required to obtain approval per paragraphs 6-5b, c, or d below. All ADSW tour requests exceeding 30 days to be performed in support of ARPERCEN will be submitted to the CAR for approval. Tours of 30 days or less in support of ARPERCEN may be approved by Commander, ARPERCEN.
b. MACOMs. MACOM commanders may approve tours and issue ADSW orders for USAR soldiers under their jurisdiction within their funding authorization for their commands. FORSCOM may delegate this authority to the United States Army Reserve Command (USARC). USARC must obtain FORSCOM approval for further delegation of this authority.
c. USAREC. The CG, USAREC may approve tours within his or her funding authorization up to a maximum accumulation of 139 days within an FY. The USAREC may delegate this authority to U.S. Army Recruiting Battalions (tours 1 to 30 days).
d. Joint and International Activities. Requests from Joint and International Activities will be processed through the supporting MACOM as stated in paragraph 6-5b. Requests for assignment directly to the Joint or International Activity staffs will be processed according to paragraph a above.
e. By-name requests for ADSW. In the case of by-name requests for ADSW, the order issuing authority may provide a substitute ARNGUS or USAR soldier of equal or better qualifications for consideration.
a. Applicants for ADSW tours must--
(1) Be a federally recognized member of the ARNGUS of a State or Territory or a USAR soldier in an active Reserve status.
(2) Have the qualifications needed for the tour.
(3) Meet the Army body fat standards in AR 600-9 . (See para 4-7b(1) for required entry on DA Form 1058-R .)
(4) Not be within 6 months of mandatory removal or expiration of term of service on the report date of the tour. This requirement may be waived by CNGB or Commander, AR-PERSCOM where exceptional military need exists and the soldier can complete the tour before the mandatory removal date or expiration term of service.
(5) Officers in the grade of major and below must not have failed to be selected by a mandatory selection board for promotion to the next higher grade. This is regardless of any appeal action which may be pending. If selected by a later promotion board, the officer will become eligible.
(6) If being considered for an ADSW tour in the first 2 months of a FY, have had a minimum break of 60 continuous calendar days following the last day of an ADSW or TTAD tour in the previous FY. This break only applies if the soldier has accumulated over 30 days of ADSW and/or TTAD in the last quarter of the previous FY. The break may be waived when mission requirements dictate expertise or skills possessed by a soldier which are not readily available elsewhere. Send requests through command channels for processing according to subparagraph (7) below. Requests will document the reasons why the prior ADSW/TTAD was not extended to permit the performance of current mission requirements.
(7) Meet tour break requirements of subparagraph (6) above unless waived by DARNG, CAR, or MACOM commander, as appropriate. Send fully justified requests through command channels. (See required statement of para 1-11 if the 60-day break is waived.)
(8) If a CSM, be laterally appointed to SGM ( AR 135-205 , chap 6) before entrance on ADSW if--
(a) The tour does not specifically require the services of a CSM; or
(b) The duty is not related to the functions of a CSM.
(9) If an officer, not have been recommended for promotion to fill a position vacancy (USAR) or not have been selected for Federal recognition in the next higher grade (ARNGUS). Officers in either status who desire an ADSW tour must acknowledge their removal from the list of those recommended for promotion or Federal recognition per paragraph 6-8d .
(10) Have served fewer than 17 years of active Federal service (AFS). If a Reserve component soldier has completed 17 or more years of AFS, approval of the Deputy Chief of Staff for Personnel (DAPE-MP) is required.
b. Applicants for ADSW tours must submit DA Forms 1058-R and other supporting documents as outlined in paragraph 4-7 . The soldier must have a current periodic medical examination and meet the retention standards of AR 40-501, chapter 3 , 4 , or 5 , as appropriate.
c. All soldiers applying for ADSW will sign the following statement in the remarks section of DA Form 1058-R: "I understand that, although at the completion of my tour, I may be within 2 years of qualifying for an active duty retirement under 10 USC 1293 , 3911 , or 3914 , it is current Army policy that I will be released from active duty at the completion of my tour unless my continued retention on active duty is considered in the best interests of the Army by the Assistant Secretary of the Army (Manpower and Reserve Affairs). I hereby consent to being ordered to active duty for the period indicated and consent to my release from active duty at the completion of this tour."
d. No tour will be approved prior to the signing of the statement in paragraph c above.
a. ADSW tours are limited to a total of no more than 180 days except as provided in b below. Approval authorities in paragraph 6-5 may extend individual ADSW tours up to a cumulative total of 180 days provided the extension does not result in a soldier accumulating over 180 days of ADSW or ADSW and TTAD combined in the current FY.
b. Only DARNG, CAR, or MACOM commander, as appropriate ( para 1-8 ), may extend tours indicated in (1) and (2) below. This authority will not be further delegated.
(1) Individual ADSW tour lengths beyond a cumulative total of 180 days.
(2) An ADSW tour extension of any length which will result in a soldier being ordered to over 180 days of ADSW or ADSW and TTAD combined during a FY.
c. Requests for ADSW tour extensions beyond 180 days will include the following:
(1) The circumstances that prevented the project from being completed during the initial tour.
(2) New milestones for completion.
(3) Soldier's previous AD, TTAD, AT, ADT, and ADSW tours in the previous and current FY.
(4) Soldier's total years of AFS through the end of the current tour.
(5) Source of funding the extension.
(6) Date of the soldier's last physical exam and a statement of whether or not the soldier meets weight standards of AR 600-9 .
(8) When appropriate, the AGR position that will remain vacant during the ADSW tour.
(9) The first line supervisor of the individual performing the tour must be identified as well as his or her organization address, and telephone number.
(10) If a USAR TPU soldier and the unit commander's decision is to reassign the soldier to the IRR, a DA Form 4651-R requesting reassignment to the IRR and a statement signed by the soldier that he or she is aware that reassignment to the IRR will terminate Selected Reserve incentives and entitlements Refer to AR 135-7 .
d. ADSW tour lengths will not include travel time and will not begin or end on a Saturday, Sunday, or holiday unless justified with the request.
e. Personnel performing ADSW tours of 1 through 139 days will be placed in a temporary duty (TDY) status and authorized proper rates of per diem and travel. ADSW tours exceeding 139 days are performed in a permanent change of station (PCS) status with shipment of household goods authorized. Requests for ADSW exceeding 139 days will indicate whether or not the soldier intends to ship household goods and whether or not dependents will be moved when dependent travel is authorized.
f. Approval of extension requests is based on written justification. Poorly prepared and/or incomplete requests will not be approved. The importance of a project or mission is, by itself, insufficient justification for approval. The circumstances which prevent project or mission completion is of primary importance ( para (1) above).
Soldiers performing ADSW will--
a. Remain under current ARNGUS or USAR strength accountability. (See e below for requirement to count an ADSW participant against AGR end strength.).
b. Be ordered to active duty in their current Reserve grade. If the soldier is in a unit, concurrence of the unit commander is required.
c. Be subject to the employing agency or unit for the administration of the UCMJ .
d. Remain eligible for promotion under the Reserve of the Army mandatory promotion system ( 10 USC 14101(a) ). However, Reserve officers ordered to active duty (other than for training) before being promoted, but after being recommended for a position vacancy promotion (USAR), or selected for Federal recognition (ARNGUS) are not eligible for promotion while on ADSW. If an officer's name is on a USAR position vacancy promotion list, or if the officer has been selected for Federal recognition in the next higher grade, the officer's name must be administratively withdrawn from promotion or Federal recognition recommendation on the tour start date. The officer must acknowledge this withdrawal action on the active duty application. This is not an adverse action. It will not be considered a nonselection.
e. Be retained under ARNGUS or USAR strength accountability and will be subject to accounting against the AGR end strength when the tour fits the criteria of paragraph 1-6 .
a. DD Form 214 (Certificate of Release or Discharge from Active Duty) will be issued on release from ADSW of 90 days or more.
b. DD Form 220 (Active Duty Report) will be issued on release from ADSW of 89 days or less.

1. This list is a guide and not all-inclusive.
|2. These types of tours will be performed under a category called temporary tours of active duty (TTAD) and will be funded by the Active Army.|
|3. ADSW tours are restricted to projects/missions vital to ARNGUS or USAR missions which exceed normal full-time staff duties and responsibilities.|
a. AR 27-10, chapter 21, section II pertains to the involuntary extension or order to active duty of ARNGUS and USAR personnel for administration of the Uniform Code of Military Justice ( UCMJ ).
b. This chapter provides guidance to commanders in implementing AR 27-10 for ARNGUS and USAR soldiers who commit offenses punishable under UCMJ while on active duty in a Federal status.
a. This chapter applies exclusively to ARNGUS and USAR soldiers who are charged with offenses allegedly committed while on the following types of duty.
(1) Active duty. This includes but is not limited to--
(a) Active duty for special work (ADSW).
(b) Temporary tours of active duty (TTAD).
(2) Active duty for training. This includes but is not limited to--
(a) Initial active duty for training (IADT).
(b) Active duty for training (ADT).
(c) Annual training (AT).
(3) Inactive duty training (IDT) (USAR only).
b. These procedures apply to ARNGUS soldiers only when serving under authority of 10 USC . The majority of duty performed by ARNGUS soldiers involves participation in required drills, field exercises, professional development training, and full-time manning of units. This duty is ordinarily performed in an inactive duty or Full-time National Guard Duty (FTNGD) status under Title 32 , United States Code (32 USC). While on 32 USC duty, soldiers are not subject to the provisions of UCMJ, but are subject to State authority. (The order to duty will identify whether the ARNGUS soldier is performing duty under Title 10 or Title 32, USC.)
c. For USAR soldiers, Title 10 duty status includes required drills, field exercises, professional development training, etc.
This section covers retention of ARNGUS and USAR soldiers on AD or ADT beyond the expiration date of their self-terminating orders AR 27-10,( para 21-4 ). Self-terminating orders are those which, by their own terms, purport to terminate on the specified effective date and return the soldier to the place where he or she entered on duty. For the purposes of this chapter, self-terminating orders cover periods of ADT, IADT, AT, ADSW, and TTAD.
ARNGUS and USAR soldiers may be retained involuntarily on AD or ADT for the purpose of completing an investigation initiated with a view to trial by court-martial up to the date of completion of the disciplinary action. When this occurs, the order issuing authority will extend the order before the termination date, or by taking action to comply with AR 635-200, paragraph 1-24 or AR 600-8-24 , paragraph as applicable, and Manual for Courts-Martial 1984, Rule for Courts-Martial 202(c). Before taking retention action, the commander of the installation where the soldier is performing duty should coordinate with his or her staff judge advocate. On receipt of notification of intent to retain a soldier, the order issuing authority will issue an amendatory order extending the expiration date of the original order.
Soldiers retained on AD or ADT by the extension of an order are entitled to pay and allowances. While on extended orders, the soldier continues to be subject to military law for additional offenses which he or she may commit. The soldier will remain or be attached to an Active Army unit until completion of the disciplinary action.
One of the following actions will take place following court adjournment:
a. If the soldier is found not guilty, or no sentence to restriction, hard labor without confinement or confinement is adjudged, or the charges are dismissed and no further UCMJ proceedings are permitted or contemplated, the soldier will be released from AD or ADT and returned to previous Reserve status.
b. If a sentence to confinement is adjudged--
(1) The AT, ADSW, TTAD, IADT, or ADT order will be terminated by the order issuing authority effective the day prior to the soldier's order to AD for purposes of serving a sentence to confinement.
(2) The appropriate Active Army general court-martial convening authority (GCMCA) will issue an involuntary AD order per AR 3-10, appendix , order format 155 and assign the soldier to the appropriate Active Army installation.
(3) Court-martial promulgating orders will be issue per AR 27-10 .
(4) Confinement will be served according to AR 190-47 .
c. If a sentence to restriction or hard labor without confinement is adjudged, the soldier will be retained on active duty at the appropriate Active Army installation until completion of the sentence, or returned to his previous Reserve status to complete the sentence, if practical.
a. An ARNGUS or USAR soldier not serving on AD or ADT may be involuntarily ordered to AD as provided in AR 27-10, chapter 21, section II for the purposes stated in paragraph 7-8.
b. The soldier may be involuntarily ordered to AD for offenses allegedly committed while he or she was in Federal duty status. This includes all AD or ADT under title 10 , U.S. Code (10 USC) as well as inactive duty training (IDT) authorized by appropriate authority.
c. Prior to preferral of charges and order to AD, commanders will consult with their supporting staff judge advocate personnel.
a. Soldiers may be involuntarily ordered to AD for one of the purposes listed below:
(1) Investigation pursuant to Article 32 , UCMJ;
(2) Trial by courts-martial; or
(3) Article 15 , UCMJ, proceedings.
b. Activation for the sole purpose of pretrial confinement is not authorized.
a. The appropriate Active Army GCMCA will issue an involuntary AD order per AR 310-10 and assign the soldier to the appropriate Active Army installation.
b. The order will cite section 802(d), title 10 , U.S. Code as the authority.
c. Request for involuntary order to AD will be initiated per AR 27-10, chapter 21, section II . State adjutants general will discharge ARNGUS soldiers from their ARNGUS status, but not their Reserve of the Army status, under the provisions of NGR 600-200 , effective the day prior to the reporting date specified in the AD orders.
d. The Secretary of the Army or his designee must approve the involuntary active duty order before an ARNGUS or USAR soldier may be confined or deprived of liberty (to include pre-trial confinement or restriction). Procedures for obtaining secretarial approval are contained in AR 27-10, chapter 21, section II.
e. The following outlines procedures for delivery of orders:
(1) The AD order will be forwarded to the commander having jurisdiction over the soldier being ordered to involuntary AD.
(a) The order will be delivered in person by the unit commander or his or her representative when practicable. A statement indicating delivery and receipt by the soldier will be signed by the soldier and filed in the soldier's MPRJ.
(b) CG, ARPERCEN may request assistance from area commanders for delivery of orders to soldiers of the IRR. Lateral coordination will also be accomplished between area commanders, as required.
(c) If the order cannot be delivered by personal contact, the order will be sent by Certified Mail, Restricted Delivery, with return receipt requested. The individual who mails the orders will prepare a sworn affidavit of service by mail in the format shown in figure 7-1 .
(d) The delivery of the order will be coordinated with the General Court Martial Convening Authority for the installation to which the soldier is ordered to AD.
(2) One of the following will be filed in the soldier's MPRJ:
(a) A statement indicating personal delivery and receipt of the orders by the soldier, or
(b) A sworn affidavit of service by mail (fig 7-1) and--
(1) A post office receipt confirming delivery, or
(2) The returned unopened envelope indicating orders were not delivered. Undeliverable mail will be compared with the latest address of record to ensure that it was correctly addressed. When an envelope is marked 'not at this address' the commander or his or her designated representative will submit a statement to show that the address to which the orders were mailed was, in fact, the latest address furnished by the soldier.
(3) Provided orders were mailed to the latest address, absence of proof of delivery does not change the fact that the soldier was properly ordered to AD.
When a soldier fails to report, the commander of the installation to which the soldier has been ordered to report for AD will take appropriate action under AR 630-10 .
One of the following actions will take place following court adjournment:
a. If the soldier is found not guilty; or a sentence to confinement, restriction, or hard labor without confinement is not adjudged, or the charges are dismissed and no further UCMJ proceedings are permitted or contemplated, the soldier will be released from AD and returned to USAR control unless earlier discharged.
b. If a sentence to confinement is adjudged--
(1) Court-martial promulgating orders will be issued per AR 27-10 .
(2) Confinement will be served according to AR 190-47 .
This chapter governs only the issuance
of orders pursuant to exercise of UCMJ jurisdiction over USAR and ARNGUS
soldiers. Nothing in this chapter is intended to restrict or limit the proper
exercise of such jurisdiction. Should any conflict arise between the application
of this chapter and the provision of AR 27-10; the Manual for Courts-Martial, United States, 1984; or the Uniform Code of Military Justice, the provisions of these references will control over any contrary provision of this chapter.
a. This chapter provides direction for the immediate disposition of ARNGUS and USAR soldiers who are serving on tours of duty under this regulation at time of mobilization.
b. For the purposes of this chapter, the term "mobilization" includes the 200K callup, selected mobilization, partial mobilization, full mobilization, or total mobilization.
c. Personnel administrative action procedures effective on mobilization are prescribed by AR 680-1(Unit Strength Accounting and Reporting), DA Pam 600-8 (Military Personnel Office Management and Administrative Procedures), and DA Pam 600-41 (Military Personnel Managers Mobilization Handbook).
At time of mobilization, commanders of installations where AT, ADT, IADT, and ADSW are being performed, will ensure that soldiers under their administrative jurisdiction while on tour are processed according to this chapter.
a. ARNGUS soldiers will be federalized with their ARNGUS units of assignment regardless of their training tour status. Soldiers who cannot return to their ARNGUS units before deployment from the mobilization station will be issued new assignment instructions according to Active Army assignment policies in effect at that time.
b. Each USAR soldier assigned to an RC unit will report for mobilization with that unit unless the soldier is serving on a tour with another organization. If the tour cannot be terminated early (e.g., soldier is in BT/AIT or OBC) and the unit deploys before the end of the tour, the soldier will remain in place and be accessioned into active duty status at the installation at which serving. He or she will be issued new assignment instructions per Active Army assignment policies in effect at that time.
Each soldier preassigned to an IMA command or organization as an IMA will mobilize at the direction of that command or organization. An IMA on AT, ADT, or ADSW at the time of mobilization will continue on that tour unless notified by mass media or instruction by the IMA command or organization to report for active duty. Due to the IMA command or organization's notification responsibility, ARPERCEN must coordinate all active duty (AT, ADT, and ADSW) with the IMA command or organization per chapter 3 before ordering him or her to AT, ADT, or ADSW.
At time of mobilization, the IRR soldier serving on AT, ADT, IADT, and ADSW will report to the commander of the installation where he or she is serving. If the tour can be terminated early, the soldier will be returned home to await a mobilization order. If the tour cannot be terminated early (e.g., BT/AIT or OBC), the soldier will be accessioned into active duty status at the installation at which serving. The soldier will be issued new assignment instructions per Active Army assignment policies in effect at that time.
a. At time of mobilization, the decision to retain an IRR or unit soldier to complete specialized medical training for critical wartime skills as designated by The Surgeon General will be coordinated by the soldier's assigned organization and CG, PERSCOM.
b. If the training cannot be terminated, the soldier will continue in the course until graduation. The soldier will be accessioned into active duty status at the installation nearest the student's training institution. On completion of training, he or she will be issued new assignment instructions per Active Army assignment policies in effect at that time.
c. IMAs have a mobilization wartime mission assignment and will mobilize per AR 140-145 , chapter 5.
(See para 1-11f for use by orders issuing authority.)
a. This instruction sheet will help you in preparing for your tour of duty. A list of terms is included ( para B-11 ) to help you understand these instructions and your orders.
b. Read your orders carefully. They show where and when to report, unit of attachment, period of duty, reporting date, and special instructions. Your orders also show whether you are required to travel by a specific mode of transportation.
c. You must leave your home in time to arrive at the duty station or at the designated assembly point if group travel is directed, on the reporting date and hour specified in your orders. Unless you live within commuting distance of the active duty site, you are entitled to be paid travel time. Travel time is computed per the Joint Federal Travel Regulation and Department of Defense Military Pay and Allowances Entitlements Manual. A soldier living within commuting distance will begin travel on the same date as the reporting date specified in the orders.
d. The Government will not be liable if you are injured while traveling in advance of, or after the authorized travel time.
B-2. Travel time and type of transportation used
The amount of travel time allowed determines the date of entry on duty and the date pay begins. You are entitled to travel time if you must begin travel on a date earlier than the reporting date shown on the orders. Official distance tables will be used to determine the official mileage between your home and duty station.
a. Authorized travel time is normally 1 day. Computation of travel time is based on the fastest available mode of travel either by air or public surface transportation whichever better meets the requirements of the order and is more economical to the Government.
b. When travel by privately owned vehicle (POV) is specifically authorized in your orders as being more advantageous to the Government and is actually used, travel time will be computed using POV.
c. If your orders direct group travel, any expense incurred by traveling as an individual will not be paid by the Government.
d. You are encouraged to apply for Government transportation as this normally is the most economical. Use an SF 1169 (United States Government Transportation Request) as stated in paragraph B-5 . If you buy your own air, bus, or rail ticket, you will not be reimbursed for the entire cost unless Government transportation was more expensive or not available.
B-3. Travel by car
Unless directed to travel by a specific type of transportation, travel by car is not prohibited. However, it is strongly discouraged for the following reasons:
a. The Government will not be liable if you are injured while traveling in advance of, or after, the time required to complete the trip by public carrier.
b. Parking facilities may not be available at the duty site.
c. There may not be enough security police to protect your car from theft or vandalism.
d. You must meet the duty site regulations regarding insurance and car registration. (Take proof of insurance liability.)
e. Limits may be placed on the use of your car during the tour of duty.
f. Further traveling while on this tour of duty may prevent using a car.
B-4. Travel for dependents
Travel at Government expense is not authorized for the dependents of a soldier ordered to annual training (AT), active duty for training (ADT), or active duty for special work (ADSW) for less than 20 weeks ( JFTR , chap 7).
B-5. Government transportation
An SF 1169 (The United States of America Transportation Request) may be exchanged for a ticket and is available on request. Application should be made immediately so that reservations can be made and tickets obtained in time to begin travel on the required date. An SF 1169 and if desired, meal tickets, may be obtained from the transportation officer at (name and address of installation or activity).
B-6. Waiver of benefits
A soldier receiving a pension, retired pay, or disability compensation from the United States because of prior military service is not entitled to pay for AT, ADT, IADT, or ADSW unless the pension, retired pay, or disability compensation is waived for the period of such tour.
B-7. Servicemen's Group Life Insurance (SGLI)
Personnel ordered to AT, ADT, or ADSW are covered by SGLI. (Orders issuing agencies should include information concerning rights, benefits, and privileges under SGLI and instructions for preparing and submitting VA Form SGLV8286 (Servicemen's Group Life Insurance Election)).
B-8. Medical record
If you had a serious medical problem since your last tour of duty, keep a copy of your medical record with you. The medical record should be presented to any physician treating you during your tour of AT, ADT, IADT, or ADSW.
B-9. Illness or injury
a. If you sustain an injury or illness or aggravate a previous condition prior to entry on scheduled active duty or active duty for training, immediately notify your personnel management officer or personnel management non-commissioned officer for further instructions.
b. Illness or injury sustained while on active duty or active duty for training should be immediately reported to the duty station commander. The commander will advise you of your entitlement to medical care and/or incapacitation pay.
Be advised and prepared that soldiers on ADT for 179 days or less are normally paid on a monthly schedule. A more frequent pay schedule is the option of the paying Finance and Accounting Officer.
B-11. DD Form 214 (Certificate of Release or Discharge from Active Duty)
An ARNGUS or USAR soldier will be issued a DD Form 214 when released from a period of ADT or ADSW of 90 days or more.
B-12. Explanation of terms
a. Commuting distance. The greatest distance a soldier may be expected to travel from home to the first duty station by departing at a reasonable hour on the reporting date and arriving during the hours specified in the orders.
b. Date of entry on duty. The date a soldier must leave home in order to arrive at the duty station on the specified date and time. The date of entry on duty and the date pay begins will be determined by the installation or activity commander at the initial station of attachment. (For this reason, the date of entry on duty is not shown on the orders.)
c. Group travel. Soldiers directed to report to an assembly point from which he or she will travel with a group to the designated site.
d. Period of training. The actual number of days of training. (Travel time to and from the duty station is not included in this period.)
e. Public surface transportation. Transportation by bus or rail.
f. Release from duty date. The date of release from duty (and the date pay stops) is determined by adding allowable travel time to the final day of training or active duty for special work. (For this reason, the actual date of release from duty is not shown on the orders.)
g. Reporting date. The date and hour a soldier is required to report for training or active duty for special work.

The consulting counsel may advise the individual regarding the merits of the contemplated separation action when, in his or her professional judgement, such advice is appropriate. The consulting counsel should, however, inform the individual that he or she cannot represent him or her before a board of officers unless he or she is also appointed as counsel for representation.

b.

Such counseling may be accomplished face-to-face, by mail, or by telephone, as appropriate. This officer will advise the individual concerning the basis of the contemplated separation and its effect, the rights available to the soldier, and the effect of any action taken by the soldier in waiving such rights.

Consideration by either of these boards does not guarantee upgrading of a discharge certificate that is less than an honorable discharge certificate. Communications between the soldier and consulting counsel regarding the merits of the separation action are privileged communications between the attorney and his or her client. If one of the basis for separation includes a continuous unauthorized absence of 180 days or more, the counsel will inform the soldier that a discharge under other than honorable conditions is a conditional bar to benefits administered by the Veterans Administration, not-withstanding any action by a Discharge Review Board. ( AR 135-178 )

(2) The appointed counsel for an individual being processed for separation for cause, where only separation with an Honorable Discharge Certificate may be effected (para 2-11), should be a lawyer if one is reasonably available.
