Arizona's Reserves and Guard Units

UPDATE: The latest deployment information as of November, 2005 has been posted anew. The information in this post is now outdated.

The Bush Administration has instituted particularly underhanded policies to maintain troop strength. The Pentagon has issued what is known as a "stop-loss" orders, under which soldiers whose units are deployed to Iraq or Afghanistan must serve the entire 12 months overseas, plus an additional 90 days, regardless of when their term of enlistment ends. In some cases, soldiers have been notified of their new deployments as little as two days before they were to have left the military. This is conscription without a draft; soldiers are performing active duty they never volunteered to serve.

The stop-loss orders attempt to make up for a lack of planning, foresight, and judgment by both the Pentagon and the White House in asking those already sacrificing in the line of volunteer duty to carry more of the load. Their disregard for the men and women in uniform will only compound those errors and problems -- a volunteer army pushed too far will simply walk away. In the interest of short-term, and politically motivated objectives, this Administration is destroying the trust between citizen and government which is the foundation of the volunteer army.

As of today, the total National Guard and Reserve personnel on active duty is 160,956, including both units and individual augmentees. The Arizona units on active duty, from a military file release listing all active reserve units, includes the following units (individual augmentees are not listed) which total 1,401 of our fellow citizens:
