When the Deputy Secretary of Defense approved the peacetime use of Reserve component intelligence elements in January 1995, few appreciated the positive impact this action would have on revolutionizing Reserve intelligence support for active commands in a crisis. Four years later, highly qualified members of a Reserve battle damage assessment team arrived in Britain to support Operation Allied Force. Within 72 hours of leaving their Reserve unit at Fort Sheridan, they were working at computer terminals at the Joint Analysis Center JAC, RAF Molesworth. Employing Reservists was hardly a surprise. The use of Reserve intelligence forces has become necessary for the active commands to meet daily mission requirements. The joint Reserve intelligence program JRIP directly supports combatant commands from both joint Reserve intelligence centers JRICs in the United States and locations in U.S. European Command EUCOM.
