Question please help

Okay Here is my situation. My husband is in Afghanistan and should return home in April. His ETS date was in Dec., but that was only the 6 years of his contract. He still has an other 2 to do in either the IRR or re-up and stay in for the remaining 1 and a 1/2. He has been offered a job with DOD. So here are my questions: 1)Do you know if being a DOD employee exempts you from being called up? 2) Do you know how strict the rule is on being boots-on-the-ground for the unit to be called up again? They might make only 11 and a 1/2 months. I don't know which is the lesser of 2 evils - IRR or staying in the remainer of his contract.

Thank you
Soldierswife
