National Guard and Reserves


The American Legion recognizes that a strain exists on many service members in the active-duty, National Guard and Reserve components, as well as equipment and training needs caused by continuing overseas contingencies conducted against global terrorism. The American Legion urges
Congress to fully fund the armed forces; to re-set units with new equipment and replacement parts, and to provide training for specific skills required for critical mission performance across the full spectrum of conflict. The American Legion urges an increase in military personnel end strengths to levels that reduce the frequency of deployments on servicemembers, the stress on families, and the risk to national security that results from conventional warfare missions being relegated to a lower priority for training, planning and resourcing purposes.
