Abstract:

Sharing fully in the Total Force Concept, the Marine Corps Reserve provides one third of the manpower and one fourth of the structural units available for mobilization. The Ready Reserve, consisting of the Selected Marine Corps Reserve SMCR, and the Individual Ready ReserveIRR, is the primary source of this manpower. The preponderance of the SMCR personnel from the Marine Reserve Forces MARFORRES, balances combat, combat support, and combat service support forces which are ready to provide the trained units and individuals needed to bring the Active Fleet Marine Force to full wartime capability. The Reserve Personnel, Marine Corps Appropriation provides the required funding to assure accomplishment of the Marine Corps Reserve mission, which is to provide trained units to selectively augment and reinforce the active forces, or to provide a Marine Expeditionary Brigade MEB Headquarters. If augmentation reinforcement is not ordered, the mission is to provide a Fourth Marine Division, Fourth Marine Aircraft Wing, and Fourth Source Service Support Group. Mobilization of the Reserve components is expected on or shortly after Mobilization DayM Day.
