WASHINGTON - The U.S. Defense Department said Wednesday the Navy and Marine Corps this week each reported an increase in reservists on active duty.

The Air Force reported a decrease and the Army reported no change. The net collective result is 1,341 more reservists than last week.

At any given time, services may mobilize some units and individuals while demobilizing others, making it possible for these figures to either increase or decrease, the Pentagon said in a statement.

The total number on active duty in support of the partial mobilization for the Army National Guard and Army Reserve is 164,847; Naval Reserve, 1,823; Air National Guard and Air Force Reserve, 19,661; Marine Corps Reserve, 7,914; and the Coast Guard Reserve, 1,055.

This brings the total National Guard and Reserve on active duty to 195,300.
