A couple of answers...

min days off...reserve is 19 days a month, so 11 days off
b or b...avg 5 hr day if you fly or dh
max time away from base...I think N/A
trip touching vacation...N/A we have computer bidding, wont assign a trip that touched vacation
res call out...2 1/2 hrs, though theres a long call option in some cases, I think its 9hrs?
health in costs...around $250/month for family med, dental $26/month...I use Tricare ret military $450/yr med
reimbursement for anything...youre kidding, right?

Hope this helps for a start..
