US Army Reserve Command Exercises
The U.S. Army Reserve Command (USARC) ensures the readiness of Army Reserve forces and prepares its nearly 1,700 units to mobilize and deploy to a wartime theater of operation. Reserve forces perform many combat support functions, including medical support. To keep Reserve forces ready for deployment, USARC conducts regular training exercises. These exercises include simulations of disaster or other crisis situations. Each year USARC distributes its Annual Training Plan.
The active Army has fewer people and fewer dollars to support its missions, but the Army Materiel Command has aggressively integrated the Reserve Components in its real-world missions and has incorporated the RC in its multi-functional and multi-echelon responsibilities. Although AMC is more than 95 per cent civilian employees, every year thousands of Army Reserve and National Guard soldiers train at AMC installations. In addition to major exercises, designed to give full-range of training, AMC supports RC individual and team enhancement and sustainment training on modern equipment. RC members can maintain critical soldier skills by performing tasks and operating or repairing equipment at AMC installations.
