Troops Under Deployment, Called Up

Deployment orders signed by Secretary of Defense Donald H. Rumsfeld last week put thousands of active-duty American soldiers in motion around the globe and called up thousands more reservists from around the country. As of Sept. 28, 16,200 Reserve and National Guard members have been called to active duty, the Pentagon says, and the U.S. Coast Guard Reserve has called a total of 2,691 reservists.

Below is a list of units who have so far been called to serve their country.
