The United States Army is at a point in its history in which it, along with the other branches of the military, are experiencing cuts, constraints and a tightening of resources. The days of seemingly large budgets, abundant financial resources and high amounts of manpower are becoming a thing of the past. As the government reduces the allocations to the military, it is examining ways to reduce costs and improve its financial prospects. One of the positions examined for reduction or outright elimination is the full time support position in the U.S. Army National Guard ARNG and Reserves USAR. The purpose of this research endeavor is to quantify the impact that these positions have on the ARNG and the USAR and determine the amount of risk associated with either reducing or eliminating them.
