The Selected Reserve, as part of the Ready Reserve, must be able to provide the combat and combat support units and personnel to augment the active forces during a national emergency. Because of the importance of the Selected Reserve, the Subcommittee on Military Personnel and Compensation, House Committee on Armed Services, asked GAO to examine enlisted personnel retention in the Selected Reserve to determine the extent, causes, and effects of personnel attrition. GAO also identified military, economic, and environmental factors affecting personnel turnover and evaluated the effectiveness of current management procedures related to attrition in the Selected Reserve.
