U.S. National Guard (in Federal Status) and Reserve Activated as of May 08, 2012

This week the Army, Navy and Air Force announced a decrease in acti­vat­ed reservists while the Marine Corps and Coast Guard announced an increase. The net col­lec­tive result is 451 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 49,939; Navy Reserve, 4,483; Air Nation­al Guard and Air Force Reserve, 9,937; Marine Corps Reserve, 4,577, and the Coast Guard Reserve, 844. This brings the total Nation­al Guard and Reserve per­son­nel who have been acti­vat­ed to 69,780, 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/d20120508ngr.pdf .
