Unit Attendance Policy Overview
To properly measure unit attendance and activity the 2nd Battalion, 75th Ranger Regiment has a formal Attendance Policy in place. Unit members are divided into two groups, active and reserve duty. Both active and reserve members have a minimum requirement to participate in the unit.
Requirements for Active Duty
Active duty members are the bulk of the unit membership. Attendance is logged and checked every Sunday for all unit members. Active duty members may submit Leave of Absences (LOA) or Temporary Pass Requests (TPR) for an excused absence and still remain active duty. On PERSCOM 'Active Duty' is noted in green. Active duty members who fail to meet the minimum attendance standard and no not file LOAs or TPRs will be swapped to reserve duty. Swapping from active to reserve duty is done through the website under the operations center. Active duty members should be attending the majority of an official campaign. For a short campaign this is 2/3, medium 3/5 and long 5/7. The off-cycle events are also done in odd numbers and are normally 3 Sunday events in length.
Requirements for Reserve Duty
Reserve duty supplement the unit with members who act as fill-ins to events and are NOT required or expected to submit Leave of Absences (LOA) or Temporary Pass Requests (TPR) provided they can meet the minimum attendance. The minimum requirements to be considered reserve duty are 1/3, 2/5 or 3/7 main unit events on Sundays. Members in the reserve do not have priority for additional billet selection such as 68W Combat Medic or 1C4X1 Tactical Air Control Party. Reserve duty members fill-in where needed and are not assigned to a squad or platoon on a regular basis. They are unable to be promoted while in the reserve and their Time in Grade is halted for every rank after Private First Class. Reserve duty has other limitations for schools, qualifications and events where slot priority goes to active duty members. With most new members they opt to slot as active duty and under different circumstances related to attendance choose to swap to reserve duty later on. On PERSCOM 'Reserve Duty' is noted in blue. Members who fail to meet the minimum attendance standard will be discharged and able to join back after a 30 day probation. Swapping from active to reserve duty is done through the website under the operations center.
