  7. Baghdad Re-Enlistment Payoff • DoD News • LTG Jack C. Stultz, Chief of Army Reserve, commented on the transformation of the Army Reserve over the past 100 years. “The Army Reserve was founded in 1908, but I can tell you that the Army Reserve of 2008 is vastly different than the Army Reserve of 1908,” Stultz said. “The Army Reserve today really is an operational force, an integrated part of the Army,” Stultz added. “And there’s no better way for us to kick off our 100th anniversary year and to symbolize what the Army Reserve today really is than to be able to conduct a re-enlistment ceremony here in Baghdad in the palace with 100 of our Army Reserve Soldiers.”

  8. 100th Anniversary Proclamations Ambassadors and PAOs are working with national, state and local elected officials to enact resolutions & proclamations – early returns include Kansas, Vermont, Minnesota and Puerto Rico 6/6/2014 7
