August 20, 2003

National Guard and Reserve Mobilized as of Aug. 20, 2003

This week the Air Force announces a slight increase of reservists on active duty in support of the partial mobilization while all other services each announce a decrease. The net collective result is 1,462 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 132,565; Naval Reserve 5,898; Air National Guard and Air Force Reserve, 28,298; Marine Corps Reserve, 18,555; and the Coast Guard Reserve, 1,962. This brings the total Reserve and National Guard on active duty to 187,278 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/d20030820ngr.pdf.
