“The active component has gone through a ‘night court’ equivalent of all of its formations and is making adjustments to the Total Army, … deciding which units are the most important and rank ordering them, and we will do that starting this fall,” said Lt. Gen. Jody Daniels, chief of the Army Reserve and commander of the Army Reserve Command.
