“The Defense Department and Homeland Security Department have the power to activate the components of the armed forces in Ready Reserve,” Trump said at the coronavirus task force briefings on Friday.

“This allows us to participate in rescue and medical equipment by enabling thousands of seasoned service members, including veterans, to help fight the epidemic,” said Trump.

“We have many individuals – retirees; wonderful militants — they come back — who have volunteered to support the country in this moment of exceptional need.” Trump commended the enthusiasm of the former veterans of the military who wish to get along.

Seamands, Army deputy chief of staff, wrote, ‘Once the country called — you answered, and now, the call can come back,’ to qualified people whom the Army approached, saying that the military is “attractive in assessing the value” of “trustworthy practitioners who practice under shifting circumstances.” “If you serve in a public hospital or medical facility, The Army announced that of the 800,000 informed people, some 9 000 demonstrated their interest in participating. “The Army has not detracted from its present care and training.”
