The Army Reserve celebrates its 112th birthday this year! Each year on April 23, the Army Reserve celebrates its inception as well as its contributions to two World Wars, the Cold War, Korea, Vietnam, the Persian Gulf War, and countless other missions.
The Army Reserve provides combat support, peacekeeping, and civil support. Army Reservists today rotate between active duty mobilizations and monthly training. The Army Reserve Command believes that the need for these reserve troops is more critical now than it has been before. In a world of persistent threats and terrorism, the Army Reserve continues to play an important role in nation-building, humanitarian outreach, national defense, and combat missions.
Happy 112th Birthday Army Reserve!
