Guidelines for Navy Reserve Families

This guide is designed to provide Navy Reserve members and their families with information that will assist them in preparing for their military lives. It provides information on family support services, pay and benefits, and the mobilization process. Pages 81-89 are available as a printable packet for e-book readers. This packet includes the Service Member Information Worksheet.


This publication makes an excellent addition to Command Welcome Aboard Packages and pre-deployment briefings.
