Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Army Reserve has authorized all units to perform Virtual Battle Assemblies (VBAs) for all Troop Program Unit (TPU) commands. VBAs have been put in place to ensure Soldiers have the maximum means to maintain individual Soldier readiness, build resiliency and provide financial stability and security to Soldiers and their families. In this illustrative image, Master Sgt. Michel Sauret poses to visually depict Soldier readiness in the virtual age during a time of social distancing. (U.S. Army Reserve photo by Master Sgt.
