National Guard and Army Reserve units may get some advance notice of possible mobilization for a war with Iraq. Reservists have expressed concern over their desire to know ahead of time, to make arrangements with family and jobs.

Assistant Secretary of Defense Thomas Hall said there are problems with advance notification giving warning to the enemy.

About 85,000 reservists were called to active duty after 9-11.

It is likely most reservists would be kept on active duty in America, although inside sources have said some units in West Virginia are likely to be deployed to the Middle East.

Military watchers believe war will commence with Iraq around the first of the year, particularly if weapons inspections default.
