973rd Quartermaster Company provides water to residents in Guajataca, Puerto Rico area
Staff Sgt. Miguel Antonio Luzunaris, water treatment specialist with the 973rd Quartermaster Company "Waterdogs" from Ceiba, Puerto Rico, watches as Lt. Gen. Charles D. Luckey, Chief of the Army Reserve, and Commanding General of the U.S. Army Reserve Command, tastes the purified water gathered from the nearby lake in Guajataca, Puerto Rico, October 22, 2017. The Waterdogs are helping the local community by gathering water and purifying it for people affected by Hurricane Maria. The Army Reserve is part of the synchronized Federal emergency response system for immediate assistance. Providing timely and appropriate response to an incident remains one of the Army's key operational concepts. The Army Reserve's enabling capabilities remain a key component of this system by maintaining a variety of readily available capabilities including aviation, civil affairs, engineering, medical, supply and logistics that can be committed to Defense Support of Civil Authorities missions. These capabilities help the Army and Army Reserve's community-based force save lives, prevent human suffering and extensive property damage when domestic disasters threaten the homeland. America's Army Reserve is the most capable, combat-ready, and lethal Federal Reserve force in the history of the Nation. (U.S. Army Reserve photo by Sgt. Andrew Valles)
