Sandra is right. She left out one perk......getting called back...until 30 years from first enlistment occurs!

For an active duty pension, you serve 20 years on active duty and you can draw retirement pay when you retire. For a reservist, you have to have a total of 20 years. Some can be active. However, you cannot collect until you are 60. They do lower it a bit if you have been activated but not by much. You also have to have an honorable discharge. There have been guys who have been very very close to retirement but screwed up and lost their pension. By the way, when you retire, you can continue to use the PX and commissary and Space Available travel. There are several perks to doing the 20.
