Navy Reserve Struggling to Recruit New Sailors, Emphasizing Benefits


Recommended Posts

The Navy Reserve is emphasizing benefits from medical care to transferability of education benefits to commissary and exchange privileges to attract exiting active-duty sailors to sign up, Vice Adm. John Mustin said Wednesday.

The Navy Reserve is struggling with recruiting, its chief said. This falls in line with all the other services and reserve components reports on shortfalls they’re experiencing in attracting qualified recruits last year, and 2023 was not looking very promising.

“I want 80 percent [of reserve recruits] to be prior service,” Mustin said, speaking at a Navy Memorial online forum.
