Difference between Regular Army & Reserve Army

Army Reserves vs The Regular Army

Army reserves generally comprises of volunteer citizens who stay in their regular jobs and lifestyle but 
form a part of the nations army. They may be called in for active duty as and when required. The regular army is the main armed force of the country comprising of personnel who serve full time and maintain a military readiness at all times.

Having an army reserve pool is very advantageous for the government as the reserves would normally enjoy the pay and the benefits only during their active deployment. Secondly there is always a pool of personnel with basic training and their deployment can be carried out at very short notice.The training levels of the reserves, however, would vary from country to country. Some countries only offer a very basic training to the reserves meaning that they would only be able to serve at the very lowest level, however, some keep the reserves training uptodate with their regular army counterparts thereby meaning that they would have a pool available for all the levels of the army.

Regular Army officers have a full-time job. This means that they remain engaged in military work throughout their employment period and do not have the opportunity to acquire a civilian job. Their active duty provides for several considerations in the remuneration package, which is inclusive of many bonuses and training allowances. Standard Army officers go through daily drills to keep fit, and it is common for them to reside within the Army barracks.

Reserve Army of some other countries

United states:
1.National Guard of the United States
2.United States Army Reserve

1.Chinese Paramilitary Forces

Sri lanka:
1.Sri Lanka Army Volunteer Force
2.Sri Lanka National Guard
