The U.S. Army Reserve is on the Road to Awesome. Two hundred thousand Soldiers strong, this is the most capable, combat-ready, and lethal federal reserve force in the history of our Nation. Highly trained and always prepared, these Soldiers live in two worlds: defending this country against dangerous global threats, as well as leveraging their expert training and unique skill sets in the private sector workforce.

By introducing partner relationships in support of Geographic Combatant Command requirements, the Army Reserve helps shape military and civilian operations throughout the world.


Generating readiness through partnerships

The Private Public Partnership (P3) program develops, integrates, and directs partner relations for the Army Reserve.  P3 partners with not-for-profit (NFP), for-profit (FP), and academic organizations to support the Chief, Army Reserve's top priorities and the Army Reserve mission of providing trained, equipped and ready Soldiers, leaders, and units to meet America’s requirements at home and abroad.

The goal of P3 is to establish mutually beneficial relationships between the U.S. Army Reserve and private and public sector organizations to create opportunities for the following:

  • Soldiers to increase their readiness on the unit, leader, and individual levels, which enhances their value to their families and communities and their readiness to protect and serve the American public
  • The Army Reserve and the civilian world to mutually contribute to national emergency response and stability operations around the world

Through projects with private sector partners, Army Reserve units and Soldiers gain access to unique training opportunities and have the ability to apply their expertise and leadership skills to real world projects that correlate with their military experience.

The Army Reserve supports a wide range of operations that include humanitarian relief and assistance, support to civilian authorities within the United States, and other types of partner-nation capacity building missions. 

The Army Reserve partners with private sector, for-profit, non-profit, academic, and non-government organizations that assist with such efforts as providing clean water, a safer environment, improvements for schools and health clinics, medical treatment, and life-skills education.

Army Reserve Soldiers live and work in both the civilian and military communities and are linked to civilian skills and resources.
