U.S. Army Reserve Criminal Investigation Division Special Agents participate in their annual training ‘Guardian Shield’ during May, 2023, at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst, N.J. CID is made up of professional, federal law enforcement officers who investigate felony crimes. CID Special Agents are commonly in suits and plain clothes as they conduct their investigations. Military Police officers are uniformed officers who may perform traffic duties on base, law and order policing, or detainee and detention operations abroad. Annual trainings like GS23 are essential to mission success not only for classroom and weapons qualifications, but also for agents to network and leverage experience from multiple law enforcement backgrounds.

Ribbon-cutting ceremony officially opens new Army Reserve Center

By Lewis Crosby 81st Readiness Division

Leadership from the 81st Readiness Division joined Soldiers, elected officials, community members, and friends today in Aguadilla, Puerto Rico, to cut the ribbon on the Army’s newest $18.7 million Reserve Center.

This 30,077 square-feet, concrete reinforced, energy efficient facility boasts many features including office space, an assembly hall, physical fitness center, classrooms, recruit and retention office, family support office, and an allotted space for a future weapons simulator.

The new Reserve Center is replacing a more than sixty-year-old facility, which totaled less than 4,500 square feet.

“The construction and delivery of this magnificent new facility demonstrates our commitment to ensuring our amazing Soldiers and Army Civilians have the environment, conditions and tools to be mission ready,” said Brig. Gen. Eric Folkestad, 81st Readiness Division Deputy Commanding General. “The building is impressive, it is beautiful, but the real value of this building will be determined by the men and women who occupy the facility.”

The new Army Reserve Center has a 150-person compacity. It will be occupied by members from the 35th Expeditionary Signal Company and support other Army Reserve Soldiers throughout Puerto Rico.

The 81st Readiness Division has responsibility for base operations for Army Reserve units through the Southeastern United States and Puerto Rico, and is responsible for ensuring units and Soldiers are prepared to deploy and fight in multi-domain operations and meet current and future Combatant Commander Force requirements.
