Services Division, part of the G-1’s Human Resources Policy
Directorate, and the Army Reserve Command.
this guide represents a big step forward in helping to ensure that
Reserve Soldiers and their families receive the Army’s full support
before and after retirement," said John Radke, chief of Army G-1
Retirement Services. "My team now includes an Army Reserve
liaison officer, Lieutenant Colonel Robert Hagan, who is spearheading
our initiative to support this vital population."

the tremendous contributions the reserve-component Soldiers are making
every day in support of Army missions literally across the globe,
know these Soldiers are serving with distinction. We owe it to them
and their families to make sure they’re ready to retire," Radke
this guide will make it much easier for reserve-component Soldiers to
understand the chronological steps they need to take before their
guide is in the process of being distributed throughout the Reserve.
