Major General Gregory Mosser, Deputy Chief of the Army Reserve.Our third guest today is Major General Gregory Mosser, Deputy Chief of the Army Reserve. Major General Mosser discusses how the Army Reserve is connecting with a new generation of prospective soldiers.  The U.S. Army’s latest campaign, “It’s Your Time,” focuses on the rewarding opportunities for today’s youth to accelerate their personal and professional aspirations in the Army Reserve. The campaign appeals to motivated, capable youth of all backgrounds by highlighting tangible ways soldiers level up their skill sets with added benefits of Army Reserve training, tuition assistance, and work-life flexibility. The Army Reserve is distinct from other ways to serve because it allows soldiers to enhance their civilian careers or pursue higher education while serving the country part-time. These Soldiers supplement the Army’s operational and strategic capabilities by providing units with in-demand skills across military intelligence, civil affairs, engineering, cyber, medical, legal, and aviation fields and beyond.

The “It’s Your Time” campaign illustrates the complementary civilian and military lifestyles of Army Reserve soldiers through four films depicting personality themes – Helper, Solver, Fixer, Connector – that align with the interests of today’s youth and opportunities in the Army Reserve. The films visually capture how this combination of experiences helps individuals realize their full potential.  For more information, visit www.usar.army.mil.
