FORT WORTH, Texas (NNS) -- An official ceremony marking the establishment of Navy Region Southeast Reserve Component Command Fort Worth (NRSE RCC FTW) was held Oct. 3 aboard Naval Air Station Fort Worth Joint Reserve Base.

The establishment ceremony celebrated the founding of the sixth regional Reserve Component Command (RCC) operating under Commander, Navy Reserve Forces Command. 

"NRSE RCC FTW is being established to focus on the needs of Reserve Sailors and their families by sub-dividing Navy Operational Support Centers (NOSCs) evenly into six RCC boundaries," said Capt. William Bach, the first commanding officer of NRSE RCC FTW.

"This realignment will provide the improved oversight and service our Sailors need to provide the strategic and operational support that the active component has come to expect from the Reserve Force," said Rear Adm. Eric Young, commander, Navy Reserve Forces Command, who served as guest speaker during the event.

NRSE RCC FTW provides oversight to 20 NOSCs located across seven states to include Arkansas, Kansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Oklahoma, and Texas. The new region is home to more than 7,500 Navy Reservists, 400 Full-Time Support (FTS) Sailors, and nearly 300 Navy Reserve units.

"From coastal riverine squadrons and aviation squadrons to Seabees and information dominance units, Reservists support every facet of the active-duty force," said Bach. "They comprise the hundreds of Reserve Sailors from our region who are currently mobilized around the world providing critical expertise and depth to our fleet and joint commanders."

NRSE RCC FTW is directly linked to Naval Reserve Readiness Command, Region 11, which was established in 1976 and later renamed Naval Reserve Readiness Command (REDCOM) South. In 2007 REDCOM South was disestablished and five regional RCCs stood-up across the United States.

"It's from REDCOM South we draw our roots," said Bach. "This region has since changed, but the headquarters and mission remain the same."

"So now we open up a new chapter in the Navy Reserve with the establishment of NRSE RCC FTW," said Young. "I am confident that this team will bring with them a wealth of experience and leadership ensuring our citizen-Sailors are well taken care of."
