This note presents a simple model of the National Guard personnel system. The model contains equations describing the supply of nonprior service accessions the supply of prior service accessions the total strength of the National Guard and the demand for National Guard personnel. Results of the accession equations uphold prior studies reporting reservist supply to be inelastic. The demand equation results show National Guard authorizations to move from shortage areas to areas of relative oversupply. Although the models exploratory nature prohibits any policy analysis based on its findings, the results suggest that the models structure is a promising one for future Reserve research. Author
