CONGRESSIONAL BUDGET OFFICE (U S CONGRESS) WASHINGTON DC
Pagination or Media Count:
The military reserves provide trained service members and units that are available for active military duty during peacetime and war.

The reserves are integral to current operations-of service members deployed in November 2004 in Iraq and Afghanistan, about 33 percent were reservists- and DoD foresees continued reliance on them.
