I went in to talk to a recruiter today about the Army. I don't quite qualify for the Army apparently (single parent, GED with no college credits) but I can join the Reserves. He told me they were paid x amount per month, however the paper said that x amount was just for training, and y amount was for the one weekend a month. I'm wondering if anyone has any experience with the Army Reserves. Do you get a decent monthly paycheck or do you get a not-so-decent monthly check for 1 weekend? I'm thinking about taking a long (four and a half hour) drive down to see my uncle who just so happens to be a recruiter, but if I can save myself some time and gas getting my questions answered here, I'd rather do that. Thanks in advance!
