Trump may call former active service members for coronavirus fight

President Trump signed an executive order that could lead to former active duty military members being recalled into service to help with the government’s COVID-19 response. This was done previously during the height of both Iraq wars. The US Army also reached out this week to retired medical personnel to possibly volunteer to support the coronavirus response effort.

This dude needs to resign he's in way way over his pumpkin head. 1/20/20 remember that date. We've been told since 81 that government is the problem, let the private sector run everything. The profit motive and the market will solve everything. How's that working out? A virus has the potential to bring the empire to its knees.

Why should they have to do any of this, he didn't appreciate "any" military before, he made fun and said, "He knows more than all the generals!" Let him and his admins son's take up the slack! You don't believe "science, or medical personnel...you do it!"

As in the IRR? Standard contract is 8 years, 4 years Active and 4 years individual ready reserve; The IRR is distinct from the Army Reserve, which like the Army National Guard, is usually 4 years monthly drilling status with 4 years IRR. Stop Loss where you simply extend the active portion of the 8 years is not the same as refusing to discharge a person who has served an entire 8 year contract.
