This article focuses on matters related to reserve mobilisation of the U.S. military. The U.S. military is into its fourth year of wide-scale reserve mobilization, a prolonged dependence that has exposed two unforeseen issues: the requirement that a reservist must "volunteer" to be involuntarily recalled and the constraints that preclude reservists with 17 years or more of cumulative active duty service from being recalled. The document Navy Reservists are required to sign, the Mobilization Sailor Advocacy agreement.
