Todays U.S. Army Reserve Components RCs are an operational force regularly deployed in overseas operations, big and small, all over the globe. Since September 11, 2001, the U.S. Army Reserve USAR has mobilized more than 280,000 soldiers, while the Army National Guard ARNG has mobilized almost twice that number, more than 525,000 soldiers. In light of this experience, the Army asked the RAND Arroyo Center to identify the emerging policy lessons regarding the use of the RCs during Operations Enduring Freedom, Iraqi Freedom, New Dawn, and other contingency operations.
