USA — National Guard (in Federal Status) and Reserve Activated as of August 17, 2010

This week the Army, Air Force, Marine Corps and Coast Guard announced a decrease in acti­vat­ed reservists, while the Navy announced an increase. The net col­lec­tive result is 481 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 76,218; Navy Reserve, 6,662; Air Nation­al Guard and Air Force Reserve, 14,829; Marine Corps Reserve, 4,445; and the Coast Guard Reserve, 778. This brings the total Nation­al Guard and Reserve per­son­nel who have been acti­vat­ed to 102,932, includ­ing both units and indi­vid­ual aug­mentees.

A cumu­la­tive ros­ter of all Nation­al Guard and Reserve per­son­nel who are cur­rent­ly acti­vat­ed may be found online at http://www.defense.gov/news/d20100817ngr.pdf .
