BUCKLEY AIR FORCE BASE, Colo., --
Per AFI 36-2254 vol. 1, para 5.7.1, all reservists must have annual tour (AT) orders published by 30 June each Fiscal Year. Adhering to this requirement ensures funding for AT orders is secured.
In order to meet these requirements, all AT requests by IMAs for the remainder of FY19 must be submitted through the Air Reserve Orders Writing System-Reserve (AROWS-R) no later than June 1, 2019.
Funding for late AROWS-R requests is not guaranteed. IMAs who do not submit AT orders requests for the remainder of the fiscal year by June 1, 2019 should contact their servicing HQ RIO Detachment for guidance on submitting a participation waiver.
If a member is unsure of the actual dates they will perform their duty, they should submit an orders request for the approximate dates of their AT. This will obligate the funding and the orders can be modified to adjust dates once they are solidified.
