THE ARMY RESERVE MISSION
The Army Reserve provides trained, equipped and ready Soldiers, Leaders, and Units to meet America’s requirements at home and abroad.
 
    Strategic (Component) Priorities
       * Develop, Plan, Program, and Resource Army Reserve 2025 as a versatile mix of technical and tactical capabilities in service to the Total Force.
       * Develop National Leaders by leveraging military and civilian skills, training, and experiences from the private and public sectors.
       * Sustain the Army Reserve as an All-Volunteer Force comprised of resilient Soldiers, Civilians, and Families supported by engaged employers and caring communities.
       * Ensure Army Reserve Soldiers and Civilians are Committed to the Army and the Profession of Arms - tell the Army’s story, be a “Soldier for Life.”
       * Use the Army Reserve’s “Plan, Prepare, Provide” and “Private Public Partnership” initiatives to generate individual, leader, and unit readiness; Army Reserve Ambassadors can also help here, know them and use them.
       * Maximize the Army Reserve’s Unique Global Command Capabilities.
     
    Operational (Command) Priorities
       * Lead and Grow Leaders to Serve the Army – Instill trust and confidence. Officers empower your NCOs, NCOs train your officers, don’t forget about your civilian workforce. Use training events as your basic model for growing leaders.
       * Man and Care for our Force – Everyone has the responsibility to recruit and retain. Reach out to those who are hurting. We can prevent sexual harassment / assault and suicides. Know what Fort Family is and use it.
       * Train to Standard – Training is a command team responsibility. Make sure your battle assemblies are NOT administrative assemblies. Utilize partnerships and relationships with Active and Guard units. Get serious with physical fitness.
       * Use Resources Responsibly – Do less with less, but whatever you do, do it better than anyone else. Create a culture of cost management and audit readiness. Find ways to save money.
       * Generate Readiness in all That You Do – The Unit Status Report (USR) is your report card for readiness. Do those things that generate readiness.
       * Live the Army Values, Enforce Accountability & Discipline – We have no place in our Army for sexual assault or harassment of any kind. Don’t tolerate anyone who fails to meet these non-negotiable values – let’s stay Army Strong!
     
    Powering the Army and defending America's interests 
     
    The world theater is changing daily. In order to protect our interests, our freedoms and our people, the role of the United States and its armed forces must also evolve. To defend our nation's interests, the country needs a force structure that is both flexible and responsive across all its elements, especially the Army Reserve.
     
    The Army Reserve had performed a complementary role to the Active component, providing combat support and combat service support functions to enable the Army to ramp up its capabilities to protect combat forces and sustain mobilization.
     
    To meet the challenges of the 21st century in the war on terrorism, the Army has had to redefine and restructure itself. It is becoming smaller, lighter and quicker. The Army Reserve is playing a critical role in this transformation. With over one million Soldiers available at any time, the Army Reserve provides a highly skilled, flexible force that can support the Army when and where they are needed most:
     
    Combat Support
    Combat Service Support
    Peacekeeping
    Nation-building
    Civil Support
     
    The Army Reserve makes up only 20 percent of the Army's organized units, but it provides about half of the Army's combat support and a quarter of the Army's mobilization base expansion capability.  At 5.3 percent of the Army's budget, the Army Reserve provides a cost-effective solution to the Army's need for specialized capabilities.
