About U.S. Navy Reserve

The United States Navy Reserve (Navy Reserve) is the reserve component of the United States Navy branch of the military. The Navy Reserve provides supplementary manpower and combat capabilities for the Navy and other military units, both in the United States and internationally. Though Reservists are enrolled in part-time training programs, they can be called into active duty at any time.

Products & Services

The Naval branch is responsible for defending the coastal borders of the United States, protecting U.S. interests in overseas trade, and engaging with incoming threats by sea. Personnel are also called upon to perform rescues and provide resources to sites of recent disasters. The Navy Reserve assists with these functions, supplying resources and performing special operations. The Reserve participates in partnerships with the Marine Corps and Joint forces as well. Reservists can enlist in a wide variety of occupational specialties within the unit, though all departments require members to serve one weekend per month and two weeks per year. All enlisted Reservists, with the exception of inactive or retired units, also commit to potential deployment, with no advanced warning or guaranteed duration of active duty service.

History

Though citizen-sailors had participated in naval missions since the American Revolution, the Navy Reserve was not officially established as a part of the U.S. military until 1915. The unit, originally called the Naval Reserve, was created in response to increased military activity during World War I, providing the manpower to fill aircraft cockpits and anticipate submarine threats. The Naval Reserve went on to participate in major American military conflicts, such as World War II and the Cold War, as well as disaster relief missions and humanitarian programs. In 2005, the unit’s name was slightly altered to create its current title, the Navy Reserve.

Job Opportunities

The Navy Reserve offers a wide range of career opportunities. Reservists can pursue careers in fields like healthcare, legal, engineering, and aviation. While many fields are open to applicants with no military experience, military veterans or currently enlisted members can access a variety of specialized positions.
