Abstract : Sharing fully in the Total Force concept, the Marine Corps Reserve provides one-third of the manpower and one-fourth of the structure available for mobilization. Our Ready Reserve consisting of the Selected Marine Corps Reserve (SMCR), and Individual Ready Reserve (IRR), is the primary source of this manpower. The SMCR forms a Fourth Division/Wing Team, balancing combat, combat service and combat service support forces which are ready to provide the trained units and individuals needed to bring the active Fleet Marine Forces to full wartime capability. The purpose of the Reserve Personnel, Marine Corps (RPMC) appropriation is to provide the required funding to assure accomplishment of the Marine Corps Reserve mission to provide trained units to selectively augment and reinforce the Active Force, provide a Marine Amphibious Brigade (MAB) or, if augmentation/reinforcement is not ordered, provide a 4th Division/Wing Team (4th DWT). The FY 1985 average strength increases from 42,100 in FY 1984 to 44,300 in FY 1985. The Marine Corps Selected Reserve and strength will increase by 2,564 from 43,883 in FY 1984 to 46,447 in FY 1985.
