    Like what, specifically??

    You get type 2 BAH, about $50 a month to cover billeting unless he's activated, you don't get Tricare, but you have the opportunity to buy TRS for the family rate of $180/month..

    You can still shop at the px..

    You can get medical as long as he's activated... Tricare will continue for 90 days after he gets home from a deployment, then it's up to you to find other medical insurance.

    Since NG is a part time job, there's not really a whole lot of benefits.. Most part time jobs don't offer bennies, KWIM?

    BUT, my DH works on post as a private civilian contractor. One of the stipulations of his job is that he has to stay enlisted in the NG, and maintain a deployable status.. He gets federal employee insurance instead of Tricare..
