The Army has launched the IRR Affiliation Program (IAP) to provide IRR Soldiers and their Families with a local network of support to ensure their well-being and readiness. The IAP will be cooperatively managed by U.S. Army Reserve Command (USARC), U.S. Army Human Resources Command (HRC), and the U.S. Army National Guard (ARNG).
The focus of the program is on communicating support and resources versus participation in unit training events. IRR Soldiers will be affiliated with a local Reserve Component (RC) unit, but will be under no obligation to participate in unit training or to maintain contact with the unit. They will only be required to acknowledge the program, their affiliation to a RC unit, and their understanding that resources and support will always be available to them while assigned to the IRR.
Soldiers with questions about IRR affiliation should call the HRC contact center at 888-276-9472, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
