Abstract:

The Chief of Staff of the Army, General Gordon R. Sullivan, has called for a Total Army, built upon trust and respect. A key factor associated with achieving this desired goal is the knowledge and understanding an Active Army officer possesses about the Army National Guard. This study examines the background of the Guard, what is taught about the Guard in the school system, and what can be done to improve the education process. This study is built upon research, interviews, and a detailed analysis of survey data provided by 142 Army, Army National Guard, and Army Reserve members of the U.S. Army War College Class of 1992. Recommendations include adding classes on the National Guard to the curriculum at Army schools, improving the opportunities for hands on experience, and the development of a means of self-study on the Army National Guard.
