Who We Are
Friendly Forces was launched in 2022 by currently serving National Guard and Reserve officers in response to a severe increase in mobilizations and deployments among the National Guard and Reserve components of the US military. The founders recognized a gap in readily available, accurate, and aggregated data to help reservists effectively target reserve-friendly organizations with whom to seek employment.
Why is this so important? Because without the civilian job security of its members, the National Guard and Reserve cannot function.
As Friendly Forces began to take shape, the founders realized they could do more for the reservist community, and sought to develop a one-stop shop for analyzing corporate military leave policies, compiling professional development resources, tracking relevant news and legislation, and providing thought leadership.
