As a former member of the USAR, that is what they paid us for. Be ready when needed.
When the 92M (mortuary affairs) and 35D/35E (Intel officers) are called up .....watch out!
It’s war. Against a virus, but still a war.
Hopefully medical only.
Section 1. Emergency Authority.

THE WHITE HOUSE,
March 27, 2020.
Payback time for those who accepted a regular commission...
I remember when they called back the 4077th during the great flu of ought nine. //sarc
Got an email from the Army asking for retiree volunteers in medical MOSs to go on active duty (excepting those who are currently working in the medical field).
Watch what happens if we have a CAF or equivalent group get sick.
Perilous times as far as I am concerned.
Might be a way to get some kind of checks in some American hands who might be sitting at home right now.
Time to brush up on DoDI 1352.01:
g. Utilization of Retired Military Members.
(1) Categories I and II retired military members who are physically qualified may be identified for potential deployment to positions that must be filled within 30 days after mobilization.
(2) The nature and extent of the mobilization of Category III retirees will be determined by each Military Service, based on the retirees military skill and, if applicable, the nature and degree of the retirees disability. Category III retirees generally should be deployed to civilian defense jobs upon mobilization, unless they have critical skills or volunteer for specific military jobs.
(3) Retired military members who live overseas will be considered first by the Military Service concerned to meet mobilization augmentation requirements at overseas, U.S., or allied military installations or activities that are near their places of residence.
Wonder if this will help some of the unemployed/laid off folks?
I can think of all sorts of MOSs needed - logistics, contracting, engineering, construction, law enforcement/crowd control - not just medical.
Lots of staff officer work.Incident Command System (ICS) is (not-so-) surprisingly analogous to a military unit staff setup and operations.
They put a call for voluntary recall of Retirees earlier this week.
Dependant relatives are going to flock to the military Commissaries.
Maybe attack the RATs?
What’s your best guess on why he’s calling up Reserves? Being proactive for....what?
NG has already been called up, right?
Just trying to understand all.
Governors have no Idea what kind of shit storm they just kicked over if they are hoarding FEMA supplies. That is my take.
That includes my daughter . . .
