Government position on opportunities for the Reserve Forces to improve ADF capability

Our Reserves are an essential part of our ADF capability. Their contribution is significant, their numbers are significant. I note we have 38,000 Reservists on the books in different capacities including 733 undertaking full-time service. For those of you in the room who have contributed to our nation in a Reserve capacity, thank you. Let’s start by acknowledging the important roles Reservists make to the ADF across all three Services. We can then talk to some exciting initiatives that will enable growth in Reserve capability.

Opposition Position on opportunities for the Reserve Forces to improve ADF capability

I had ADF Reserves as part of my Defence portfolio responsibilities in my first term and it is great to see so many people here who have kept their involvement up over the years - it’s an outstanding example of the general citizen’s support for our men and women in uniform.

Australian Army Reserve Transformation - A total force

Lieutenant General Angus Campbell AO DSC, Chief of Army's Conference address.

The history of the Australian Army is one of citizen soldiers serving alongside each other, in full time and part time service. Over the 116 year history of the Australian Army, the components of our Army have had various names: Militia, ‘permanent’ forces, the First and Second Australian Imperial Forces, Citizen Military Forces and ‘Regular’ Army to name just a few. For more than half our history, part time soldiers made up the bulk of our force; serving, sacrificing and contributing to the development of our proud record.
