ARMY RESERVE VISION: The most capable, combat-ready and lethal federal Reserve in the history of the Nation.


AMERICA’S ARMY RESERVE: GLOBALLY POSITIONED, GLOBALLY ENGAGED

On 23 April, America's Army Reserve will celebrate 109 years in service to the Army and the Nation, evolving from a tiny corps of medical professionals to a globally positioned and engaged operational reserve force.  

For 109 years, the Army Reserve has never failed to meet the challenges of its time, evolving from a tiny corps of medical professionals to what is today the Army’s global operational reserve force.
Globally positioned and engaged to support America’s active duty forces, today’s Army Reserve is the most capable, combat-ready and lethal federal reserve force in history, providing trained and ready forces and critical capabilities wherever needed, anywhere around the world. But the nature of the threat is changing and the Army Reserve is again rising to meet it, forging the most capable, combat-ready and lethal Reserve the Nation has ever known. 


Minute Man
BORN in 1908
as the Medical Reserve Corps, evolved into the Organized Reserve, a strategic reserve under federal control, to what is today a global operational reserve force. Manned, trained and equipped to enable combat formations, the Army Reserve provides quick access to trained and ready forces and the critical capabilities the Army needs to initiate, sustain and prevail in major operations. 

Through two World Wars, the Cold War, Korea, Vietnam, the Persian Gulf War, the Global War on Terror and countless crises, operations and contingencies, the Army Reserve has never failed to answer the Nation’s call.
