Army Offers Career Program

The Career Intermission Pilot Program allows up to 20 enlisted Soldiers and 20 officers each year to take a break from service for up to three years. During that time, they will be in the Individual Ready Reserve (IRR). Servicemembers return after their break with the same rank and same time in service when they left. They are paid 1/15 of their base pay during their time away. For every month off, a Soldier owes the Army two months of active duty service. No promises are made about where a Soldier will be assigned upon return. Enlisted soldiers who are interested in applying can visit the U.S. Army Human Resources Command (HRC) website or the Army Stand To! Website for more information, or contact their career representatives at HRC.
