Browsing: retirement points

Q. Can I buy back my military time based on my retirement points instead of my DD 214? After four-plus years of active duty, I retired from the U.S. Army Reserve. A. Deposits to get credit for periods of active-duty service are based solely on the basic pay you received on active duty. A copy of the DD 214 is used by the finance center for your branch of service to verify that amount.
