Reserve, National Guard Units Called Up - October 18th - Generic Information

An additional 300 members of the Naval Reserve are being called to active duty as part of the partial mobilization authorized by President Bush. This brings the total Naval Reserve called to active duty to approximately 3,400 to date.

The majority of these Naval reservists have been recalled individually based on specific skills, primarily law enforcement and security. Other skills as part of the mobilization include medical, supply, intelligence and other specialties.

At any given time, services may mobilize some units and individuals while demobilizing others, making it is possible for these figures to either increase or decrease.

Total number currently called to active duty for the Army National Guard and Army Reserve is 11,304; Naval Reserve, 3,400; Air National Guard and Air Force Reserve, 12,722; Marine Corps Reserve, 333; and the Coast Guard Reserve 2,628. This brings the total Reserve and National Guard called to active duty to 30,387 from 237 units, 44 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and individual augmentees.

Since today's call-up included only individual augmentees; there is no attached major unit list.
