The Officers' Reserve Corps In Peace

Military Handbooks: The Plattsburg Manual

During peace the Secretary of War can order any Reserve Officer to duty

for instruction for a period not to exceed fifteen days in any one

calendar year. While so serving, an officer will receive the pay and

allowance of his grade in the Regular Army. This period of service may

be extended with the consent of the Reserve Officer. By thus extending

such periods of instruction a Reserve Officer may, at the conclusion

thereof, be examined for promotion to the next higher grade.
