Today's LA Times, Troop Call Up - 06/29/04 12:56 PM

"WASHINGTON For the first time since Operation Desert Storm, the Army plans to announce this week an involuntary mobilization of thousands of troops from the Individual Ready Reserve, the latest signal that the service is struggling to bolster ranks stretched thin by the global war on terrorism.

The move, which Army officials say is likely to involve notifying roughly 6,500 soldiers about a possible deployment, is meant to fill holes in active and reserve units preparing to go to Iraq and Afghanistan this fall and early next year."

Hopefully not all these troops will be activated. But it is another reason you should be very familiar with the SCRA.
