Guest Opinion: Army Reserve celebrates 100 years

-A A +A
By The Staff

April 23 marks the 100th anniversary of the U.S. Army Reserve. This is occasion is noteworthy given the history of the Army Reserve, and its mission since September 11, 2001.The Army Reserve’s 100th anniversary validates our nation’s enduring need for such a force, and the event gives Americans the opportunity to recognize the contributions of hundreds of thousands of men and women who served our nation for a century.Further, our anniversary recognizes that the force has changed dramatically over 100 years to meet the needs of our nation. It began as a small reserve force of about 160 medical professionals. It became a much more capable force that provided all types of combat arms, combat support, and combat service support capabilities. And today it is an operational, expeditionary and domestic force that is an essential piece of the Army.What hasn’t changed in 100 years is the commitment, selfless service, and personal courage of our men and women who voluntarily put their lives on hold – and on the line – to defend our country and our freedoms. Since terrorists slammed hijacked airliners into New York’s World Trade Center, the Pentagon and a field near Shanksville, PA, Sept. 11, 2001, the men and women of the Army Reserve have served on the front lines of the War on Terrorism at home and abroad.
