Washington, DC At A Glance
The Office of the Chief, Army Reserve, is located in the Pentagon and provides the Chief of Army Reserve with advisors and specialized groups that develop and execute Army Reserve plans, policies and programs. The CAR is responsible for nearly 200,000 Army Reserve Soldiers.
The District of Columbia is also home to Army Reserve intelligence and counterterrorism units, whose mission is to analyze, process and distribute strategic and tactical information to keep the nation and its citizens safe.

The U.S. Army Reserve Element Defense Information Systems Agency is charged with supporting a variety of missions, including protecting and defending essential elements of the Global Information Grid, ensuring its availability, integrity, authenticity and confidentiality. USARE-DISA provides operational support for a number of signal missions. The
unit has several detachments located throughout the U.S., including Washington, D.C., and has mobilized in support
of operations around the world. The Reserve Support to Disaster Relief Operations (RESDRO) program manages the volunteer pool that augments the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE).

Army Reserve Soldiers in the pool are matched against USACE emergency needs by their skills and have agreed to serve under temporary voluntary activation when called. The RESDRO program provides a structure for USACE subordinate commands to request and receive assistance when skill or personnel requirements are not available within the active command.
