The success of rapid and effective mobilization and deployment of tactical forces will be dependent to a great extent on the Armys capability to expand rapidly its administration and logistical support structures. An essential aspect of this requirement is that the Ready Reserve be able to provide a substantial number of preselected and trained individuals who can report for active duty, with minimum delay, to organizations that must rapidly increase their capabilities to perform crucial tasks during the early phases of mobilization. The Mobilization Designee MOBDES program has 7,710 authorized spaces and has 5,895 assigned. A survey of 812 MOBDES officers from a computer random sample was made to determine the extent that the program was meeting its regulatory objectives. In addition, the author interviewed program managers and visited Reinforcement Training Units RTU and observed MOBDES Inactive Duty Training. Conclusions and recommendations are given for improvement in the program. Author
