Abstract : The purpose of this thesis is to examine the issues facing the Naval Reserve as it transitions from its cold war mission to new and, possibly, expanded roles under the New National Military Strategy. The thesis further provides an overview of the changed strategic environment and budgetary concerns that serve as drivers for change within the Naval Reserve. The evolution of the present Naval Reserve organization, manpower and mobilization issues, and the opportunity for organizational reform are also addressed. Additionally, an overview is provided of proposals and directives for expanded reserve participation under the Innovative Naval Reserve Concept. Lastly, conclusions and recommendations are made for facilitation of the ongoing transition.
