As mandated by federal law, an honor guard detail for the burial of an eligible veteran shall consist of no fewer than two members of the Armed Forces. One member of the detail shall be a representative of the parent armed service of the deceased veteran. The honor guard detail will, at a minimum, perform a ceremony that includes the folding and presenting of the flag of the United States to the next of kin and the playing of Taps which will be played by a lone bugler, if available, or by audio recording. Today, there are so few buglers available that the United States Armed Forces often cannot provide one. However, federal law allows Reserve and National Guard units to assist with funeral honors duty when necessary. On the day of the burial or interment, the U.S. Flag is lowered to half-mast.

NAVY RESERVE

(Last Update: Wednesday, 31AUG2016)

  • Navy Reserve lock Military [DOD EMAIL Certificate] (aka “The NAVY RESERVE Homeport”)
  • Navy Reserve (NR) organization and components Structure – Purpose of reserve components [Source: 10 USC CHAPTER 1003 Sec. 10102]. The purpose of each reserve component is to provide trained units and qualified persons available for active duty in the armed forces, in time of war or national emergency, and at such other times as the national security may require, to fill the needs of the armed forces whenever more units and persons are needed than are in the regular components. The NR is the Reserve Component (RC) of U.S. Navy, and is broken down into several categories based service responsibilities and commitment status in contributing to the overall mission. It is comprised of the Ready Reserve, Standby Reserve and Retired Reserve-Inactive.

  • Ready Reserve – The Ready Reserve provides a pool of trained service members who are ready to step in and serve whenever and wherever needed. It is made up of the Selected Reserve – which includes Drilling Reservists/Units as well as Full-Time Support (FTS) personnel – and the Individual Ready Reserve (IRR).
    • Selected Reserve (SELRES) – This group – the largest and most relied upon of the Ready Reserve – consists of:
      • Drilling Reservists/Units – These are designated Reservists who are available for recall to Active Duty status. They serve as the Navy’s primary source of immediate manpower. They typically fulfill the traditional service commitment of one weekend a month and two weeks a year. And they receive many of the same benefits and perform many of the same duties as their Active Duty counterparts. This includes persons on initial Active Duty for training.
    • Full-Time Support (FTS) – These are designated Reservists who perform full-time Active Duty service that relates to the training and administration of the Navy Reserve program. They may be assigned to shore activities and commands or operational units. They typically are not reassigned to different locations as often as those on regular Active Duty. And they receive the same pay, allowances and benefits as Active Duty members.
      • See also the FULL-TIME SUPPORT (FTS) section.
    • Individual Ready Reserve (IRR) – This group consists of individuals who have had training or have previously served in an Active Duty component or in the Selected Reserve.
      • Inactive status – These members of the IRR do not drill, are not obligated to take part in military activities, and receive no pay or benefits.
      • Active status – Individuals assigned to the IRR may be eligible to receive pay or benefits for voluntarily performing specific types of Active Duty (AD) service.
  • Standby Reserve – The Standby Reserve is made up of Reservists who have transferred from the Ready Reserve after fulfilling certain requirements established by law. Most common Standby Reservists are those who have been deemed key civilian employees by the government or those suffering through personal adversity or disability. While they are not required to perform training and are not part of any specific unit, they do create a pool of trained individuals who could be mobilized, if necessary, to fill manpower needs in specific skill areas.
  • Retired Reserve-Inactive – The Retired Reserve-Inactive is made up of Reservists who are drawing retired pay or are qualified for retired pay upon reaching 60 years of age.
