Gaurd & Reserve Contribution

As of May 17, 2006, DoD reports that 99,487 members of the National Guard and Reserve who have been mobilized. This includes:

80,157 Army National Guard and Army Reserve
4,964 Navy Reserve
7,681 Air National Guard and Air Force Reserve
6,338 Marine Corps Reserve
347 Coast Guard Reserve

Here's to the 99,140 Citizen Warriors (and 347 Citizen Coasties :) that have endured long seperations from their families, their civilian careers, and in most cases their home Country to defend Freedom around the world.

One weekend a month and two weeks a year, my ass.
