    Army reserves question

    Advertisements
    My fiance is in the army reserves. He went to his first drill on August 2 and 3. How long should it take for him to get paid for drill.
    Also does anyone know when he should get his bonus for joining?

    well if its anything like my db he will get paid two weeks or so after the drill and my db got his bonus well half his bonus when he got home from his basic and AIT and then he gets the other half when he has been done with the training for two years.

    As far as I know, whatever is done by the 5th of the month, will be reflected in the 15th pay, and then anything done before the 20th will be on the first of the month. If I were you, I wouldn't expect it on the 15th tho'. DFAS has a way of messing up from time to time.
