Active, Reserve relationship forever changed, Panetta says
from Department of Defense
In an address at the National Guard's Joint Senior Leaders Convention, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta spoke about how the relationship between the active duty and the reserve components has fundamentally changed in the past 10 years. As the Guard and reserve are "increasingly indistinguishable from the active component," Panetta asserted that all active and reserve personnel of all services have worked together closely for a decade. That experience of "fighting alongside each other" has built trust and respect across the force.
