I know someone that will be real happy when the 78,379 drops to 78,378:

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. Total number currently on active duty in support of the partial mobilization for the Army National Guard and Army Reserve is 78,379; Navy Reserve, 4,991; Air National Guard and Air Force Reserve, 5,725; Marine Corps Reserve, 7,006; and the Coast Guard Reserve, 363. This brings the total National Guard and Reserve personnel, who have been mobilized, to 96,464, including both units and individual augmentees.

It will be a real Merry Christmas.
