Welcome
Welcome to the homepage of United States Africa Command Joint Reserve Affairs Office. Our goal is to provide current information for Joint Reserve Component (RC) service members coming to HQ Africa Command. RC service members are valued members of the Africa Command team, enabling this forward-located combatant command to carry out its mission in the African theater.

Mission
The Joint Reserve Personnel Affairs Office (J113) manages U.S. Africa Command HQ’s operational and strategic Joint RC forces, ensuring members are trained, ready, and integrated to meet mission requirements.

  • We manage Individual Mobilization Augmentees (IMAs) to fill IMA billets identified on the Joint Table of Mobilization and Distribution (JTMD) in order to provide operational support requirements and manpower required to shift to a wartime, contingency, or mobilization footing.
  • We manage service allocated funding for RC augmentation to provide short-term operational requirements (up to one fiscal year) and missions, 30–365 days above and beyond routine duty.
  • We maintain U.S. Africa Command's RC policy and is the primary advisor on all Joint Reserve Component issues.
