If your orders say to file for travel reimbursement through DTS, you'll use the DTS system with your RESERVE profile (your SSN with an R at the end).  When your orders are approved in AROWS-R, they will flow automatically to your DTS profile and start an authorization.  When that happens, the member should go into DTS and fill out the rest of the authorization, including making any travel arrangements if needed.  Sign and forward the authorization for approval, which happens at your detachment.

When you complete your orders, you'll go back into DTS and use the approved authorization to create and route the travel voucher.  See the user guide below for detailed help.  If you run into issues, contact your detachment and ask to speak to the DTS ODTA (Organizational Defense Travel Administrator.
