Conference Proceeding
The Chief of the Naval Reserve, Commander, Naval Reserve Force — here, on 6 May 2004 addressing Naval Reserve instructor pilots assigned to VT-21 at Naval Air Station Kingsville, Texas — spoke recently at the U.S. Naval Institute's editorial offices in Minneapolis, Maryland, with Proceedings editors Fred Rainbow and Fred Schultz. Since Desert Storm, the Coast Guard, the Air Force, and especially the Navy have integrated their forces and mission-oriented them such that they don't need to be mobilized. In the words of the CNO Chief of Naval Operations Admiral Vern Clark, it's not the Naval Reserve, it's the Navy.
