Abstract:

The basic thrust of this paper is to make the reader aware of the implications involved with the placement of large portions of the Armys engineer forces in the reserve components. The transfer of these forces to the Reserve Components has significantly reduced the capability of the active engineer forces to meet their mission requirements. The paper considers these mission deficiencies in terms of their impact on the engineers reduced ability to provide the army with infrastructure it requires to commit and sustain a force and, ultimately, the engineers inability to provide the needed combat support to the tactical commander.
