Abstract:

The study examines whether or not the current Reserve Force structure has met its mission objectives. Data from past mobilizations and current readiness was used to determine that the current program has major deficiencies. Other reserve programs in England, Israel and successful US programs were studied to obtain methods of improving the program. It was concluded that a change in mix of units between the Active and Reserve forces is necessary together with changing the Reserve units into cadre type units.
