Mid Year 2010 Update: IRR Involuntary Mobilizations and Exemptions

I’ve fielded a number of questions about the pace of IRR recalls lately. From my vantage point, the pace has slowed significantly since the first quarter. There was a relatively light flurry in the first week of April, but since then, not much. HRC St. Louis (which has, historically, cut IRR mobilization orders) and HRC Alexandria, are both in the process of moving operations and people to Ft. Knox, KY. That move is slated to be completed sometime in September. It’s possible, though uncertain, that this move and the joining of the active and reserve components of Human Resources Command under one roof at Ft. Knox, has affected the nature and scope of IRR recalls. I’ll provide more information as the situation develops this summer.
