National Guard (In Federal Status) and Reserve Mobilized as of October 18, 2006
This week, the Army and Marine Corps announced an increase in the number of reservists on active duty in support of the partial mobilization, while the Air Force and Navy had a decrease. The Coast Guard number remained the same. The net collective result is 451 more reservists mobilized than last week.
At any given time, services may mobilize some units and individuals while demobilizing others, making it possible for these figures to either increase or decrease. Total number currently on active duty in support of the partial mobilization for the Army National Guard and Army Reserve is 80,856; Navy Reserve, 5,996; Air National Guard and Air Force Reserve, 6,806; Marine Corps Reserve, 7,222; and the Coast Guard Reserve, 265. This brings the total National Guard and Reserve personnel, who have been mobilized, to 101,145, including both units and individual augmentees.
