Abstract:

The Reserve Components have been the subject of much criticism and indeed, there is a genuine question regarding their ability to really perform their mission. However, a study of the history of reserve forces, examination of the laws and regulations governing their organization and training, and an evaluation of past mobilizations, indicates that reserve forces have been vital to the defense of America in the past. Proper utilization will make them a useful and potent force to achieve national goals in the future. This paper discusses one type of reserve unit, the USAR Training Division, its mission, capabilities and potential, together with its demonstrated ability, to illustrate that the training division at least among the reserve components, is a good investment for the American taxpayer.
