This study comprises an analysis of the mobilization and deployment of Air National Guard fighter aircraft units in a search for an efficient and effective means for using the Air Guard. The author uses the historical examples of the Korean War, Vietnam War, Operation DESERT STORM, and the Global War on Terror to illustrate the context and misuse of Air National Guard fighter units over time. These examples show the various deployment strategies used by political and senior military leaders and highlights the reactive way in which senior military leaders used the reserve component.
