WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump on Friday signed an executive order authorizing the secretaries of homeland security and defense to call up military and Coast Guard reservists to active duty, the White House said.

Under the order, the two secretaries are authorized to order reservists from the Army, Navy, Air Force and Coast Guard to active duty for up to two years “not to exceed 1,000,000 members on active duty at any one time.” https://www.reuters.com/article/us-health-coronavirus-usa-military/trump-authorizes-call-up-of-military-reservists-to-active-duty-white-house-idUSKBN21E3I1

I wonder how many members in IRR will be recalled if any, and if they are only looking for medical Ratings specifically. What is everyone’s else thoughts on this? When was the last time a recall like this has been activated by our Commander in Chief?

Good question, I'd think rates related to construction too but just a wild guess. So there's Seabees, maybe cooks too, this thing could grow. Definitely medical though.
