The Marine Corps Reserve is an important component to the success of the overall mission of the Corps.

U.S. Marine Corps Forces Reserve Mission Statement:

Commander, Marine Forces Reserve (COMMARFORRES) commands and controls assigned forces for the purpose of augmenting and reinforcing the Active Component with trained units and individual Marines as a sustainable and ready operational reserve in order to augment and reinforce active forces for employment across the full spectrum of crisis and global engagement. COMMARFORRES is the principal advisor to the Commandant of the Marine Corps on matters pertaining to Marine Forces Reserve.

Reserve positions can be filled by new recruits, prior service Marines, and veterans of another branch. Veterans joining from another branch are required to complete boot camp. Those who are interested in joining the Marine Corps Reserve should speak to their local Marine Corps recruiter.
