What is RSP training?
Recruit Sustainment Program (RSP) is a program of the United States Army National Guard designed to introduce new recruits to the fundamentals of the U.S. Army before they leave to Basic Combat Training (BCT) and Advanced Individual Training (AIT). The motto is “Paratus Preliator” (prepared warrior).
Can you be excused from drill?
Failure to call before you miss your drill weekend or immediately thereafter is considered an unexcused absence by the military. In the military, missing 4 hours of a required training equals one unexcused absence. Therefore, an entire weekend can add up to four unexcused absences.
What happens if you miss RSP drill?
Once you have completed both BCT and Advanced Individual Training (AIT) you will return to RSP for one final drill—known as Battle Handoff—before joining your regular unit and beginning work in your MOS. This leaves punishment for absence offenses to the individual states’ unit commanders.
How long can you stay in RSP?
All you have to do is repay at least 10% per year for up to ten years. Generally, your repayments start 5 years after your first withdrawal.
Can you be fired while on military leave?
