National Guard (In Federal Status) and Reserve Activated as of August 16, 2011

                 This week the Army and Marine Corps announced a decrease in acti­vat­ed reservists, while the Navy, Air Force and Coast Guard announced an increase. The net col­lec­tive result is 261 few­er reservists acti­vat­ed than last week.
                 At any giv­en time, ser­vices may acti­vate some units and indi­vid­u­als while deac­ti­vat­ing oth­ers, mak­ing it pos­si­ble for these fig­ures to either increase or decrease.  The total num­ber cur­rent­ly on active duty from the Army Nation­al Guard and Army Reserve is 70,442; Navy Reserve, 4,454; Air Nation­al Guard and Air Force Reserve, 9,728; Marine Corps Reserve, 6,001, and the Coast Guard Reserve, 742.  This brings the total Nation­al Guard and Reserve per­son­nel who have been acti­vat­ed to 91,367, includ­ing both units and indi­vid­ual aug­mentees.

                A cumu­la­tive ros­ter of all Nation­al Guard and Reserve per­son­nel who are cur­rent­ly acti­vat­ed may be found on line at http://www.defense.gov/news/d20110816ngr.pdf .
