Abstract:

The study examines solutions to issues surfaced during a mobilization planning exercise conducted at the US Army War College, 29-30 October 1983. Specifically, the question is whether it is feasible to relieve over-taxed mobilization stations through the utilization of state owned facilities. The study is oriented at a specific geographical region and utilizes data gathered from an existing state owned training site within the mobilization area of a mobilization station identified as over-taxed. Additionally, data was obtained using a review of existing literature, and personal interviews of Reserve and Active officers across the mobilization structure. The growing reliance on Reserve and National Guard Forces to help provide a conventional deterrant strategy is tied to the timely mobilization of forces in being. It is concluded that mobilization and deployment improvements can be effected through the implementation of the alternatives studied. However, long term ideal solutions will be realized over time and with the availability of additional resources.
