INDIVIDUAL READY RESERVE
The Navy Individual Ready Reserve (IRR) is a force that consists of personnel who must fulfill their MSO under 10 U.S.C., 651, members fulfilling a service obligation incurred via contract, and those who have fulfilled their MSO but voluntarily remain in the IRR. The IRR is composed of the Active Status Pool (ASP) and the Volunteer Training Unit (VTU).
The ASP is a manpower pool consisting of individuals who have previously served in the active component or in the Selected Reserves (SELRES) and now serve in a non-pay, non-drill status. NAVPERSCOM (PERS-93) is responsible for ASP screening and management. The VTU consists of personnel, organized into units, who serve in a non-pay, drill requirement status. Navy Operational Support Centers (NOSCs), under the cognizance of NAVRESFORCOM, are responsible for the continual screening and management of their attached VTUs.
***IMPORTANT CHANGES – PLEASE READ***
Significant changes have been made to policy in regards to service in the IRR-ASP. Continued service in the IRR after military service obligation (MSO) has been fulfilled will not normally be permitted. For detailed explanations of the new policies and procedures, please read MILPERSMAN 1001-125 and MILPERSMAN 1001-145 in their entirety.
