The IRR consists of Reservists in the following categories. Most active duty Marines have an additional obligation of four years in the IRR:

  1. A manpower pool comprise principally of trained individuals having served previously in the AC (Active Component) or in the RC (Reserve Component) who still have some Period of MSO (Military Service Obligation) remaining.
  2. The IRR includes some personnel participating in officer training programs or in the Armed Forces Health Professions Scholarship Program (AFHPSP).
  3. The IRR also includes members of the Delayed Entry Program (DEP); these are high school students preparing for bootcamp.
  4. Also included in the IRR are those personnel who are awaiting IADT (initial active duty training)and are assigned to units but serving without pay.
