Max Baratz , chief of the Army Reserve and commander of the U.S. Army Reserve Command , also pointed_out recent changes in his organization.He pointed_out that the Army Reserve is made_up primarily of combat service support units -- it has only one combat line unit and only two attack helicopter battalions.But more than 70 percent of all medical units in the Army of the United_States are reserve units.

The reserves have changed along with the rest of the Army since the end of the Cold War.As we downsize the heavy divisions , there will now be a plug' in them , which is partly National Guard and partly Army Reserve , Baratz said.Some Army headquarters that had previously been all active-duty soldiers will soon be made_up partially of reserve-component troops.
...
Baratz , who was in charge of mobilization during Operation Desert Storm , said he is also changing how we use our medical professionals who are called to active duty.We want to retain all of them , but we want to make it meaningful activity..
Other changes the Army Reserve has put into effect recently include trying to make overseas training more common for reserve units and trying to co-locate regional training sites with major military hospitals.
