The US Army Reserve Turns 108!
The US Army Reserve first began as the Medical Reserve Corps in 1908. Following World War I, Congress restructured ground forces into an Active Duty Army, National Guard and an Officers and Enlisted Reserve Corps respectively. The Officers and Enlisted Reserve Corps later became the US Army Reserve. Peacetime Reserves provided the country with a pool of trained troops that could be called upon in a time of war.
For a Reserve component that only trains one weekend a month and two weeks a year, when it comes to wartime, their presence is noteably felt. During Operation Iraqi Freedom, Operation Enduring Freedom and the Regional War on Terror (RWOT), the US Army Reserve has employed over 218,000 troops in support of active duty personnel, and in this the Army Reserve has proven its mettle, often having paid the ultimate price to ensure that freedom is felt around the world.
The War on Terror has demonstrated that the United Sates cannot go to war without the support capabilities of the Army Reserve. Army Reserve Citizen Soldiers have earned their status; no longer a supplemental, strategic reserve force but rather an able and operational force upon whom the Nation must routinely call.
