U.S. Army Reserve Command celebrates 110th birthday
Maj. Gen Scottie Carpenter, U.S. Army Reserve Command deputy commanding general, receives an official proclamation from Mr. Jonny Dwiggins, Army Reserve Ambassador-North Carolina, during the 110th birthday celebration of the U.S. Army Reserve, April 20th, 2018. Formed April 23, 1908 as the Medical Reserve Corps, today's U.S. Army Reserve has evolved into a global operational reserve force, engaged to support America’s active duty forces. Today’s Army Reserve is the most capable, combat-ready, and lethal federal reserve force in history of our nation, providing trained and ready forces and critical capabilities wherever needed, anywhere around the world where the Army needs to initiate, sustain, and prevail in major operations. Through two World Wars, the Cold War, Korea, Vietnam, the Persian Gulf War, the Global War on Terror and countless crises, operations, and contingencies, America's Army Reserve has never failed to answer the nation’s call.
