Reserve Forces Called To Active Duty - Nov. 7

An additional 415 members of the Naval Reserve are being called to active duty as part of the partial mobilization authorized by President Bush. This brings the total Naval Reserve called to active duty to 6,948 to date.

These Naval reservists have been called individually based on specific skills, primarily law enforcement and security. Other skills as part of the mobilization include medical, supply, intelligence and other specialties.

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.

Total number currently called to active duty for the Army National Guard and Army Reserve is 14,125; Naval Reserve, 6,948; Air National Guard and Air Force Reserve, 28,989; Marine Corps Reserve, 612; and the Coast Guard Reserve 2,233. This brings the total Reserve and National Guard called to active duty to 52,907 from 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and individual augmentees.

As there are only individual call-ups today, there is no attached chart of major units.
