ABSTRACT
The article traces the history of the U.S. Army Reserve. The Army Reserve was established as a reserve force at the beginning of the French and Indian War in the 18th century. The Organized Reserve Corps, which was created in 1908, produced a peacetime pool of trained Reserve officers and enlisted men. The U.S. Congress authorized retirement and drill pay in 1948 in recognition of the importance of the organized Reserve to the war effort during World War II.
