National Guard and Reserve Mobilized as of Aug. 13, 2003

     This week, the Air Force announces a slight increase of reservists on active duty in support of the partial mobilization.  The Army and Navy each announce a decrease.  The Marine Corps reports no change.  The net collective result is 271 fewer reservists 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 133,188; Naval Reserve 6,353; Air National Guard and Air Force Reserve, 28,042; Marine Corps Reserve, 18,995; and the Coast Guard Reserve, 2,162.  This brings the total Reserve and National Guard on active duty to 188,740 including both units and individual augmentees.

     A cumulative roster of all National Guard and Reserve who are currently on active duty can be found at http://www.defenselink.mil/news/Aug2003/d20030813ngr.pdf.
