Army Reserve Soldiers of all ranks can support local recruiters through the Active Duty Operational Support, Reserve Component (ADOS-RC) program to help generate referrals that will result in Army Reserve enlistments.
Tours are normally five to 14 days, but can be up to 30 days with approval by recruiting battalion commander.
Reserve Soldiers who are interested in supporting recruiting should contact their local recruiter to discuss potential dates and recruiting activities and tour objectives.
A tour request and justification memorandum for Active Duty Operational Support, Reserve Component must be completed by the Reserve Soldier and the recruiter, and sent to Recruiting Battalion Reserve operations for review and approval based on funds availability and tour justification/goal.
Soldiers performing ADOS-RC serve their tours within a 50-mile radius of their residence or Reserve Troop Program Unit (TPU) and must provide their own transportation to the tour site. Soldiers must have approved orders from their TPU sent to the local Recruiting Battalion Reserve operations before reporting for duty. They must also bring copies with them when they report to the recruiting company/station.
Duty cannot be performed without approved orders from Soldier's unit.
