Abstract : This monograph reviews changes, specific to Army National Guard (ARNG) capabilities, required to optimize ARNG performance while serving in an operational role. These changes include a more encompassing mobilization strategy, continued equipping of the ARNG in line with the AC, investment in ARNG maintenance facilities and programs, increasing fulltime manning levels in the ARNG, providing predictable budgets to support operational requirements, and a review of the mobilization process. This monograph focuses on ARNG issues and is intended to improve understanding of the issues faced when managing and employing the ARNG in an operational role.
