“Ready Now. Anytime, Anywhere.” The mission of the U.S. Navy Reserve is to provide mission-capable units and individuals to the Navy, Marine Corps Team throughout the full range of operations from peace to war. In today’s environment, the Navy Reserve is called on to play an increasingly active role in the day-to-day planning and operational requirements of the active Navy. The Navy Reserve represents 20 percent of the Navy’s total assets and is a significant force multiplier the fleet must have to meet its growing global obligations. Nowhere is this more evident than aboard NOSC Chicago, the “Gem of the Mid-West” and finest Operational Support Center the Navy has to offer. NOSC Chicago’s mission is to provide administrative and logistic support to more than 1,700 Navy Reservists from 48 units throughout the upper Midwest for mobilization readiness and operational support to the Fleet. On any given month, there are 200 to 300 of NOSC Chicago’s Selected Reservists mobilized in support of various Naval missions throughout the world.
