Abstract:

Army force planning places heavy reliance on reserve maintenance and other logistical support units. Decreases in numbers of active component maintenance units, defense planning that visualizes a come as you are war scenario, and new tactical weapons and support systems employing advanced technology contribute to the need for adequately trained reserve maintenance units. A study was proposed to determine if Army Reserve Component RC Combat Service Support CSS maintenance units could effectively mobilize, deploy, and ultimately sustain a committed force. When the study proposal was presented to Major General Vincent E. Falter, Chief, Army Force Modernization Coordination Office AFMCO, HQDA, he challenged the study group to find and recommend innovative ways to train RC maintenance units prior to M-day in support of the Armys latest tactical equipment. Thus, the study centers on the feasibility of premobilization training initiatives designed to increase the capability of nondivisional maintenance units to respond to early deployment to a major theater.
