Active Duty Reservists Increase

The Department of Defense has announced that the Navy, Air

Force and Marine Corps have each reported a decrease in

reservists on active duty supporting the partial

mobilization, but with the Army’s increase, the net result

is plus 10,213 reservists overall.

DoD said the total number of reservists is in constant

flux due to the simultaneous mobilization of some and

demobilization of others, and that the new figures as of

January 7, show the total number of personnel currently

on active duty in the Army National Guard and Army Reserve

is 164,847; Naval Reserve 1,491; Air National Guard and

Air Force Reserve, 19,942; Marine Corps Reserve, 6,515,

and the Coast Guard Reserve, 1,164. This brings the total

National Guard and Reserve on active duty to 193,959

including both units and individual augmentees, according

to DoD.
