After World War I, the Reserve officer’s association was
founded in order to keep citizens, both civilian and combat veterans
in a state of preparedness. Therefore several hundred officers gathered
together to formulate the policy of the association, viz. "...support
and promote the development and execution of a military policy for
the United States that will provide adequate National Security."
Reserve programs therefore date back to the era between the world
wars and they were to prove very useful during the mobilization
of the Second World War. After the war the association of reserves
re-banded and then the reserve officers of the U.S. navy, u.s. marines
and US coast guard merged with those of the army. When the U.S.
airforce was created, then the country had an organization incorporating
reserves of all the services.
The Association consists of 55 departments one in each of the 50
states, plus departments in Latin America, the District of Columbia,
Europe, the Far East and Puerto Rico. The Defense Education forum
was constituted and now assists the association in educating the
community on matters relating to national security. Resources for
defense education activities are derived from individual, group,
and corporate donations as well as occasional card sales. External
organizations also provide an important source of funding.
The association offers reserves of the army, U.S. navy, U.S. airforce,
u. s. marines and the US coast guard several benefits, such as educational
benefits, insurance programs at special rates, opportunities for
travel and leisure, access to relevant publications, a career centre,
information about legislative updates and personal services such
as relocation and credit card services.
Reserves or Reservists serve as a highly trained force available
for the assistance and protection of the country whenever required.
This is a way of keeping military veterans as well as civilians
with no other military connections in a state of preparedness. It
is even possible for a veteran who has been out of service for less
than four years to re-enlist at the same pay scale. Further a veteran
of one service can join and become the reservist of another service.
Reservists are able enjoy additional benefits such as a retirement
program, educational assistance thru the Montgomery GI Bill, the
department of veteran affairs home-loan guarantee program (for reservists
with 6 or more yrs honorable service), exchange and commissary privileges,
travel opportunities, management and leadership training, health
care and promotions based on ability and performance.
