USA — National Guard (in Federal Status) and Reserve Activated as of May 25, 2010

This week the Army, Navy, and Marine Corps announced a decrease in acti­vat­ed reservists, while the Air Force announced an increase. The Coast Guard announced no change. The net col­lec­tive result is 2,005 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 96,849; Navy Reserve, 6,280; Air Nation­al Guard and Air Force Reserve, 18,451; Marine Corps Reserve, 6,647; and the Coast Guard Reserve, 834. This brings the total Nation­al Guard and Reserve per­son­nel who have been acti­vat­ed to 129,061, includ­ing both units and indi­vid­ual aug­mentees.
