Abstract:

This study attempts to determine if the All Volunteer Army has had any impact on readiness and, if adverse, the extent of the impact. The investigation examines the origins of the All Volunteer Army, who serves, readiness with regard to Total Army and personnel, and the impact on mobilization and morale. The All Volunteer Army has had an adverse impact on readiness in the areas of mobilization and morale. The situation appears unlikely to improve unless reserve force strengths improve.
