Well the nice thing about reserve units is you can't get called up by your State for anything.   The downside is you are more likely to get activated full time quicker for combat duty or combat support if the federal government is actively fighting anywhere.  The process in the beginning is exactly the same as the regular duty and guard units.  They all go to basic training, then advanced training at the same places, and after graduation they are assigned to their units.  After that it's basically like the Guards but purely federal controlled.  Usually one weekend drill per month with a 2 week annual training on active duty status.  You can always pick up some extra active duty training with short schools or additional training like Primary Noncommissioned Officer Course etc.
