Abstract:

The need for the improved logistical support of Major United States Army Reserve Commands MUSARC, consistent with the changing doctrine in the employment of Combat Service Support, and improved readiness in the event of mobilization is the basic problem. Recommendations developed in this paper are the result of a review of previous and ongoing studies of the Army Reserve, with emphasis on the role of Army Reserves Combat Service Support units in the event of mobilization, and the impact that proposed changes in organization and employment on Combat Service Support forces will have on the Command and Control Structure of the Army Reserve. Key ARCOM personnel, members of the United States Army Logistics Center, and representatives of the Directorate of Reserve Components at Support Installations were interviewed, and in addition, comparisons were made with the function of the United States Property and Fiscal Officers USP and FO of the Army National Guard.
