Reservists/National Guard are not required to complete two years of active duty service but rather the term for which they are called. Additionally, any active duty service member injured on active duty and subsequently discharged as a result of a disability incurred in the line of duty is automatically eligible for placement into enrollment Priority Group 3 and is not subject to length of service requirements.
