General of the Armies
John J. Pershing
met with 140 World War I

At the meeting General Pershing said:

"I consider this gathering perhaps one of the most important, from a
military point of view, that has assembled in Washington or
anywhere else within the confines of this country within my time."

Army Reserve Brigadier General Henry J. Reilly
was elected first national president,
and the association's mission was defined:

"To support a military policy for the United States that will provide
adequate national security and to promote the development and
execution thereof."

Dedicated to the reservists of the uniformed services of the United States
on the 2nd of October 1997.
