SUBJ/ACTIVE-RESERVE FORCE INTEGRATION//

GENTEXT/REMARKS/1.  WINNING THE GLOBAL WAR ON TERRORISM REQUIRES
SEAMLESS TEAMWORK THROUGHOUT OUR TOTAL FORCE-ACTIVE AND RESERVE.
CURRENT ACTIVE-RESERVE INTEGRATION INITIATIVES ARE PAYING GREAT
DIVIDENDS FOR OUR SERVICE, PRODUCING IMPROVED WARFIGHTING CAPABILITY
IN THE GLOBAL WAR ON TERRORISM.
2.  TO FURTHER THAT EFFORT, ON 29 APRIL 2005 THE COMMANDER IN CHIEF
REDESIGNATED OUR RESERVE COMPONENT FROM NAVAL RESERVE TO NAVY
RESERVE.  THIS IS MORE THAN JUST A NAME CHANGE.  IT MORE ACCURATELY
DESCRIBES OUR ALIGNMENT AS ONE NAVY, AND I WANT IT TO INFLUENCE
INTEGRATION BETWEEN OUR ACTIVE AND RESERVE COMPONENTS.
3.  IT IS NOW TIME FOR THE NEXT STEP.  EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY, WE
WILL REFER TO ALL OF OUR SAILORS, ACTIVE AND RESERVE, AS UNITED
STATES NAVY SAILORS.  THIS SHARED TITLE WILL STRENGTHEN THE BOND
BETWEEN OUR ACTIVE AND RESERVE COMPONENTS, AND ENHANCE THE CULTURE
OF INTEGRATION NEEDED TO MOST EFFECTIVELY DELIVER DECISIVE POWER
FROM THE SEA.
4.  OUR NAVY WILL CONTINUE TO DELIVER POWERFUL CAPABILITIES IN
THE
NATION'S DEFENSE, FUELED BY THE INTELLIGENCE, INNOVATION, AND ENERGY
OF ALL SAILORS.  WORKING TOGETHER-SEAMLESSLY-THE ACTIVE AND RESERVE
COMPONENTS WILL CONTINUE TO FIELD COMPLEMENTARY SKILL SETS AND
RESOURCES THAT PROVIDE POWERFUL AND FLEXIBLE OPTIONS ACROSS THE FULL
SPECTRUM OF COMBAT AND NON-COMBAT OPERATIONS.
5.  OUR TASK IS TO DO WHAT WE CAN EVERYDAY TO MAKE OUR NAVY BETTER.
START BY ENSURING THE NAMETAGS OF ALL OUR SAILORS READ USN AND
TAKE POSITIVE STEPS TO ENSURE ALL MEMBERS OF THE TEAM UNDERSTAND AND
APPRECIATE THE CONTRIBUTIONS THAT SAILORS THROUGHOUT OUR NAVY MAKE
TO OUR INTEGRATED TOTAL FORCE.
