Annual training refers to the yearly training period conducted by all National Guard and Reserve components of the United States military pursuant to law and military service directives. Usually advertised as two weeks each year that personnel must attend, annual training periods have increased to as much as month-long events during the Iraq War. This training may be conducted at the home unit, a reserve unit's supported active duty command, a NTC (national training center), or any other appropriate location.
