The United States military was designated by the President and the Congress as the lead agency responsible for the U.S. fight against the use of illicit drugs. The force structure of the services remains uncertain, while their commitment to this struggle occupy a primary position in their planning. As an integral member of the Total Force the U.S. Air Force Reserve primary role in the future of the Drug War. Reserve priorities have been restructured and training policies modified to combine required activities with operational necessities. The Air Force Reserve has accepted the challenges and adopted innovative approaches to ensure that combat readiness is maintained while making lasting contributions to the fight against the drug trade. An office has been established at Air Force Reserve Headquarters to coordinate all aspects of the reserve effort. As we move into a new and unknown future the battle against this our newest enemy will require the efforts of all military members. The implications on our National Security must be addressed as we restructure our missions of the future.
