Abstract:

The first part of this paper presents the scope of peacetime personnel related programs, assesses their impact on overall readiness, and comments on the effectiveness and appropriateness of the procedures through which these programs are implemented. The last part of the paper documents the manning requirement and suggests an organizational approach which will provide CONUS divisions the potential to successfully accomplish the twin peacetime requirements of unit readiness and installation support. The study concludes that the great majority of the present programs are essential and should be continued. Further, while there is an apparent division of opinion as to the long range effectiveness of the procedures being applied, there presently are insufficient grounds to recommend the institution of immediate or sweeping changes. The study also concludes that a peacetime strength augmentation averaging 5.6 of the CONUS divisions presently authorized MTOE is required to provide the capability to respond to installation support, and concurrently, to maintain a level of training proficiency which would allow the division to deploy at full readiness within two weeks of alert. The study recommends that the present divisional structure and authorized number of spaces remain unchanged. Author
