The Marine Corps has called 182 reservists, members of an infantry company and a command element detachment, to active duty, along with an additional 57 individual reserves. This brings the total called to active duty in the Marine Corps to date to 612 reservists.

The Air Force Reserve Command has reduced its unit-related number called to active duty by 134 members. These reductions come from various units across the command. However, an additional 48 individual mobilization augmentees have been called to active duty. This brings the total number of Air National Guard and Air Force Reserve Command called to active duty to 13,767 to date.

At any given time, services may mobilize some units and individuals while demobilizing others, making it is possible for these figures to either increase or decrease.
