Must Army volunteers follow the same rules and regulations that paid personnel in the organization follow?  
Army volunteers are considered employees of the US Government and subject to the same ethical standards in performance as paid employees. For example, they are expected to adhere to the Privacy Act regarding confidentiality of personal information and records. If volunteers have agreed to work certain days or hours for an agency, they are expected to fulfill those obligations or contact a pre-determined member of the organization if unable to do so. Furthermore, just as employees are protected from certain liability abuses in an organization, the Volunteer Protection Act of 1997 extends this protection to volunteers serving nonprofit organizations and governmental entities.
