Abstract:

The purpose of paper is to examine relations between the active Army and Army National Guard ARNG as members of the Total Army subsequent to the Total Force Policy. Relations between components have long been uneasy dating back to the founding of the nation and opposition to the idea of a large federal standing Army. However, relations have significantly deteriorated since the Gulf War in 1991 and release of the Quadrennial Defense Review in 1997. Efforts to adapt to post Cold War realities have ignited disputes between active Army and ARNG leaders causing one to question roles, missions, and the relevance of Total Army components.
