RESERVE UNITS BEGIN MOBILIZATION FOR ROTATION TO SUPPORT OPERATION JOINT ENDEAVOR

The Secretary of the Army announced today the mobilization of Army Reserve and National Guard units to relieve Reserve Component units currently in the Balkans and Germany who are nearing the end of their 270-day tour of duty.

As a result of these and future mobilizations in coming weeks, Presidential Selected Reserve Call-up authority has been increased to 8,181 in order to accommodate the overlap in numbers between service members being called to federal active duty and those currently serving. As reserve units returning from the Balkans are demobilized, these numbers will reduce quickly. The original ceiling when President Clinton signed the executive order December 8, 1995 was 3,800. That number was increased by 500 to 4,300 in January 1996 at Army's request. Currently the Army has 4,225 reserve component soldiers serving in 97 units overseas and in the U.S.

Elements of the Army Reserve are already in place at Fort Benning, Ga., Fort Bragg, N.C., and Fort Dix, N.J. to help process mobilized units for deployment. Those units called so far include: UNIT COMPONENT HOME STATION APPROX SIZE 813th Replacement Co USAR Gordo, Ala. 29 131st Mobile Public Affairs Det. ARNG Montgomery, Ala. 18 158th Ordnance Co.
