Hello! Thanks for using JustAnswer. My name is ***** ***** I will be the expert ready to answer your questions to the best of my ability and with top-quality service.

You fill. out the section of the form that represents his present status, so it would be the reserve award. DFAS can explain to you how that percentage was calculated. My understanding is that it is a combination of his time plus his assignments.
