U.S. Army Cadet Command is seeking retired Senior NCOs (E-7 & E-8), Captains, Majors, and Lieutenant Colonel's to
fill critical positions within the Senior Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) programs. Cadet Command has locations
throughout the United States, requiring officers and enlisted personnel to fill several vacant positions that would
otherwise go unfilled due to personnel shortages. Cadet Command’s mission is to train and commission the future
leadership of the U.S. Army. In addition, each program is looking for retirees with operational experience, and the
ability to meet the mental and physical demands common to working with college age cadets. The program has had a
100% recall rate since its inception in the spring of 2007. However, Army funding will be assessed at the beginning of
each fiscal year, to determine the number of new recalls and extension requests to be approve.

The appointment to active duty is for a two year term, with the option to extend. The retiree recall process takes about
three to five months to get through the channels – the packet works through Headquarters Cadet Command, up to the
Assistant Secretary of the Army for Manpower & Reserve Affairs for final approval authority. Once recalled (mobilized),
the Soldier and their family is eligible for full active duty benefits like TRICARE, Concordia Dental, etc. Salary is based
on the retired rank, and upon release form active duty, retired Soldiers are entitled to credit the additional time served
on active duty for computation of retired pay. Qualified Soldiers are mobilized from their current home, and authorized
movement of household goods and family members. If the Soldier opts not to move household goods and family, they
are not authorized per diem. Retirees will not be eligible for promotion, nor will they be required to submit
