reserve questions outstanding

The mechanics are difficult enough to figure out along with the big picture understanding of how an IMA is different than an traditional reservist. Here are some of the confusions I had to come to terms with:

* What is the difference between the reserve and the guard? Why do both exist?
* Do you get paid or not?
* Can I be deployed?
* How do I get an assignment?
* How do I transfer an assignment?
* How do I see my different categories in the vMPF?
* What are points? How does the system ‘work’?
