On April 23rd of this year, the Army Reserve will celebrate 113 years of courageous service to the Army and the Nation, evolving from a small corps of medical professionals to what it is today: the best trained, best equipped and most ready Army Reserve in our Nation’s history.
Through every war, operation and emergency, at home and abroad, the men and women of the Army Reserve have never failed to meet the challenges of their time.
From the valor of the 100th Battalion/442nd Infantry Regiment in World War II – whose awards include 560 Silver Star Medals, 21 Medals of Honor, and seven Presidential Unit Citations – to the courage of the Soldiers and units who responded to the COVID-19 pandemic without delay, the Army Reserve has always been there when the Nation needed them most.
Today, even amid a global pandemic, nearly 8,000 Soldiers from more than 250 units are deployed to 23 countries around the world. We are grateful for their courage and dedication to ensuring that the Army Reserve is ready today and shaping the force to meet the challenges of tomorrow.
