Abstract:

Existing literature is filled with articles about the readiness training of Reserve Forces but very little has been accomplished recently to improve the use of this national asset. The current limitations on Reserve Forces training on domestic projects are reviewed and sweeping new policies are recommended to remove these obstacles to effective training. A new strategy for the training management of Reserve Forces is proposed. This new strategys impact on training time, the Armys image and maintaining strength levels are discussed in detail. The use of new reserve units with a regular Army Cadre is recommended to improve training for reservists. Cost effectiveness considered the ability of foreign powers to produce vast amounts of war materiel due to low salaries paid their soldiers. The need to increase the nations return on its military expenditures is discussed. Useful community projects are proposed as one method to accomplish this goal. Finally, the present community need for domestic projects and the reserve units ability to accomplish these projects are documented. It is concluded that better readiness training can be obtained from having selected reserve forces train on useful community projects. Author
