Abstract:

With the continued downsizing of the active forces, the ability of the Army National Guard roundout brigades to enter combat quickly after mobilization and fight effectively is an essential part of this nations Total Force policy. During Operation Desert ShieldStorm, none of the Guard roundout brigades achieved combat-ready status before the war ended. An integral part of the brigade is the forward support battalion, yet little attention is paid to its formal staff training. The Army has no armory or unit based training system for forward support battalion staffs. This study states a need for such a system that is both technically feasible and will decrease post-mobilization training time. This author proposes a system that will result in a trained forward support battalion staff.
