The Quadrennial Defense Review QDR is the latest in a series of initiatives designed to capture a post Cold War peace dividend, through restructuring and downsizing U.S. military forces. Among the major issues to be resolved is the future role for the National Guard divisions in the force structure mix. This paper applies two conceptual models, one for force structure assessment and another for total mission capabilities, to examine the appropriate role for the National Guard divisions. The thesis developed in the paper is that the eight National Guard divisions are essential to the U.S. military strategy but must be restructured to maximize their utility within the total force.
