The Department of Defense announced an increase in activated National Guard and reserve component members this week for the Marine Corps Reserve, Air National Guard and Air Force Reserve, while the Army National Guard, Army Reserve, and Navy Reserve announced a decrease of activated members. Coast Guard Reserve numbers did not change from last week. The net collective result is a decrease of 87 activated National Guard and reserve component members in comparison to 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 13,972; Navy Reserve, 2,719; Marine Corps Reserve, 942; Air National Guard and Air Force Reserve, 6,029; and the Coast Guard Reserve, 259. This brings the total National Guard and reserve component personnel who have been activated to 23,871, 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/Mobilization-Weekly-Report-150331.pdf.
