As 2020 comes to a close, we reflect on COVID-19 and the Army Reserve's response to the pandemic with one of the largest domestic mobilizations in its history. Urban Augmentation Medical Task Forces are formed to mobilize Soldiers with an array of medical expertise to hotspots across the country. At the height of the response, more than 3,000 Soldiers are in the fight.
Today's Army Reserve covers more than 20 time zones across five continents. Our people are the most important weapon system in accomplishing the mission, ensuring units are ready and capable to deliver victory. Our Soldiers are mentally tough, with a desire to serve their country now, and lead troops into the fight of tomorrow. In an every-changing landscape of both visible and invisible threats, we stand ready to defeat our enemies, anytime, anywhere. Modernization drives our ability to support operations in the multi-domain environment. We will mobilize rapidly with the right capabilities to win the future fight. America's Army Reserve is ready now, shaping tomorrow.
In the fight against COVID-19, it's not only important to choose the right mask but also to wear it properly. Cover both your mouth and your nose. You may be asymptomatic and infect others without knowing it. Your mask protects others. Their masks protect you. Take the fight seriously. Wear your mask.
Lt. Gen. Jody Daniels, chief of Army Reserve and commanding general, U.S. Army Reserve Command, wants you to not let your guard down as the holiday season approaches. COVID-19 is still a threat, and Soldiers and civilians should continue to take appropriate measures to keep others and themselves safe. Wear face masks, wash your hands and maintain social distance.

"We are a values based organization. So, when in doubt, look to our seven Army Values to be the guideposts, to be the road signs, to make sure we're on track. Racism is contrary to our Army Values. It's actually an insider threat, but it dwells within hearts, and it dwells within our ranks, and we must do everything we can to root it out and crush it."

Shoot to kill the virus: Chief of Army Reserve receives COVID-19 vaccine shot
Lt. Gen. Jody Daniels, Chief of Army Reserve and Commanding General, U.S. Army Reserve Command, receives the COVID-19 vaccination from Spc. Evan McBee, medic, at the Womack Army Medical Center, at Fort Bragg, North Carolina, Jan. 11, 2021. “The vaccine is supported by science. If I play roulette and contract the virus, I could be asymptomatic or on a respirator. I don’t want to risk finding out where in the spectrum I’ll fall. I want to protect myself, my family and my co-workers,” said Daniels. The Pfizer and Moderna vaccines work by using transient information carrying molecules (mRNA) to teach our cells to make a protein that triggers antibody formation to create an immune response in our bodies. The mRNA is synthetic, not extracted from actual viruses, and it does not enter or interact with your body’s own DNA. The vaccine requires two doses, so Lt. Gen. Daniels is setting up the appointment to receive her second dose in about 21-28 days.
