Abstract

The purpose of this chapter is to describe the role of the Reserve Components of the Armed Forces of the United States during the September 2001 terror attacks and the role they play in the war on terror, both in the United States and in foreign nations. Reserve Component forces will operate with the Department of Homeland Security to provide security within the United States. Reserve Component units possess many unique skills and knowledge of local conditions that will contribute greatly to maintaining homeland security. Reserve Component forces also participate in major military operations overseas.
