Brig. Gen. Juan Ruiz — deputy commander of a West Coast logistics unit, Army Reserve
The Army Reserve has ramped up like the rest of the military over the last decade. But as operations wind down in Iraq and Afghanistan, the Reserve is focusing on maintaining a diverse corps. That means recruiting active-duty soldiers at the end of their engagements and reaching out to young people.
