Pentagon releases list of mobilized units
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- The Pentagon released Thursday a list of the first Air National Guard and Air Force Reserve units to be called up as part of Operation Noble Eagle.
Noble Eagle is the operation set up to provide homeland defense in the aftermath of last week's terrorist attacks in New York and Washington. The initial call-up includes 5,131 National Guard and Reservists from 29 units and 24 states. A total of 35,000 are expected to be called to duty.
"No other single action more clearly demonstrates the national resolve than to mobilize the National Guard and Reserve forces of America," said Craig Duehring, principal deputy assistant secretary of Defense for Reserve Affairs.
There are a total of 1.3 million men and women in the U.S. Reserve units. The affected units are listed below.
