U.S. Marine Corps Lt. Col. Alex Waugh, officer in charge of Individual Ready Reserve Muster, talks to IRR Marines during the 2013 Muster April 27 at Nellis Air Force Base, Nev. The 2013 Las Vegas IRR Muster had 70 Marines attend in the morning and 115 for the afternoon session.

NELLIS AIR FORCE BASE, Nev. — The Annual Individual Ready Reserve muster took place April 27 at Nellis Air Force Base, Nev., and was attended by 216 IRR Marines. The muster was held at the Armed Forces Reserve Center.

The intent of the annual IRR muster is to ensure Marines’ personal information is current while encouraging interaction with the muster partners.

The Marines that attended the event were briefed by 15 civilian agencies such as Nevada Veterans Services, Keller Williams Realty, Elite Aviation, and Nevada Highway Patrol to advise service members of all the benefits they have access to. It also featured local businesses offering career guidance.

“It is important for IRR Marines to attend,” said U.S. Marine Corps Maj. Charles Carte, Marine Forces Reserve. “There is a wealth of knowledge that you can receive … and it is good for these Marines to see that the local community can and wants to help.”

U.S. Marine Corps Sgt. Josue Cervantes, Individual Ready Reserve, updates his current address and information into the Marine Online database April 27 at Nellis Air Force Base, Nev. Marines that attend the event get briefed by 15 civilian agencies, with the purpose of advising service members of the benefits to which they have access.

At the 2013 Las Vegas IRR muster, 70 Marines attended in the morning and 146 attended the afternoon session.

“This event gave me some information I wasn’t clear on and a lot of things to think about,” said Sgt. Josue Cervantes, U.S. Marine Corps IRR.

U.S. Marine Forces Reserve Senior NCO in Charge of the Las Vegas region, Staff Sgt. Tim Creedon, said organizers expected a big turnout this year, and that the IRR can only get bigger in the years to come because the local community understands they can gain great assets to their companies with prior service military members.

“The morning session couldn’t have been better,” Creedon said. “I am excited for the Marines that attended the morning session.”

According to www.marforres.marines.mil, the majority of Marines in the IRR are former active component Marines who have not yet completed their Military Service Obligation but have completed their initial contractual period of active duty. IRR Marines have some administrative obligations and one training requirement, which is to attend an IRR Administrative Muster for administrative screening if ordered.
