The Adjutant General's Policy
The New Jersey Army National Guard is offering a mobilization deferment for involuntary mobilization for a period of up to 24 months. The role of the New Jersey Army National Guard Soldier has become increasingly more demanding as we have transitioned from a strategic reserve to an operational force. Deferment for involuntary mobilization provides adequate transitioning time for Soldiers and stability for their families.
The following individuals who enlist into the New Jersey Army National Guard through one of the following enlistment programs will be authorized the 24 month stabilization from the date of separation or discharge.
This stabilization policy does not apply to existing New Jersey Army National Guard members reenlisting in the New Jersey Army National Guard.
Note: The stabilization period exempts soldiers from current mobilization authority (OIF/OEF) but does not exempt soldiers from a new, full federal mobilization under Presidential or Secretary of Defense authority, or State mobilizations under gubernatorial authority.
