For Airmen who want to continue serving their country, but can no longer commit to a monthly or annual schedule, the Civil Air Patrol Reserve Assistance Program (CAPRAP) may be an option. Most CAPRAP Airmen are Participating Individual Ready Reservists (PIRR). PIRRs are category E reservists who participate for points towards retirement only, though they can occasionally earn pay and points. There are also opportunities for Individual Mobilization Augmentees and Traditional Reservists to serve in CAPRAP as an additional duty. To learn about CAPRAP openings in their region, Reservists should call their regional CAP-USAF office. For more information, visit the Civil Air Patrol website.
