Some states have different names for this. It's what the Army National Guard uses for temporary jobs and to pay the soldier active duty pay. When I get home from this deployment I have the oppertunity to work ADSW for 6 months. I would like this because I would be home every night with my wife and family. Is the airline required to hold my job for me after I come home and work ADSW? This would give me a chance to catch up on life and unwind from the stresses on this deployment before going back to flying? They were good with me on the deployment, but then again, they had to let me go. ADSW could be different.
