Answers:

Reservists are trained along with Active Duty personnel. Yes you can start training at the age of 17 but under specific conditions. including satisfactory progress in school and permission of both parents. Yes you are paid.

When I went thru basic, many years ago, there were reservists in our company.

Yes, you can join at 17 with your parents permission. If you have not graduated high school, you can attend Basic between your junior and senior year and AIT (job training) after graduation. You would attend a drill with your Reserve unit 1 weekend a month. If you are already a senior, you can join and go to drill 1 weekend a month. You would then attend Basic and AIT after graduation.

Basic and AIT for Reservists are held at the same places as active duty. For the jobs found in Reserve units, that will mean FT Jackson, SC about 90% of the time. While you are at Basic and AIT, you are paid the same as an active duty Soldier PLUS you will receive BAH (extra pay for housing) since you will return to your residence after AIT and the Army won't pay to move you.

For weekend drills, you receive 2 days of base pay for every duty day. That means you get 4 days base pay for a weekend drill. It will work out to about $200 take home pay for a weekend drill. Uniforms and equipment will be provided to you for free. You will also do a 15-day Annual Training (usually during the summer) where you will receive active duty pay for 15 days. Weekend drills will take place at a Reserve Center. If there is training in a different location, the military will provide transportation. They MIGHT provide lodging if you are travelling more than 75 miles or so. For Annual Training, you will normally report to the Reserve Center on the first day, then there will be transportation to where the Annual Training will be held.

at 17 you must either be a High School Graduate, or doing Split Option( basic takes place the summer before your senior year of high school. you attend AIT after you graduate).

yes you are paid. in fact it's Active duty pay and benefits for the time you are in basic and AIT.

where you train depends on your MOS.

Basic Training and AIT take place at the same locations as the Active Army in addition to the National guard.
