Abstract:

This paper argues that a citizen-based, modified and extended service career model will enhance capabilities, adaptability, and community relations, and serve as a more effective structure for long-term force management. Expanding upon the Total Force Policy and Continuum of Service Concept, this proposal recommends inverting the force to a citizen-based force that is reorganized to serve in an Active State or National and Global Operational status or Reserve Domestic and Strategic Support status. The force is initially trained in active status and then either serves state or federal active force needs or returns to reserve status for state orfederal reserve force needs.
