Abstract:

The Defense Planning Guidance DPG directs the Army to program sufficient forces to implement the National Military Strategy NMS . Inherent in the Armys ability to support this strategic guidance is the integration of the Active Component AC and the Reserve Components RC into a Total Force. Early access of the United States Army Reserve USAR combat support CS and combat service support CSS units is essential. These units are configured into force packages designed to support the warfighter. The USAR tiered resourcing guidance is in compliance with Department of the Army equipping policy of distributing equipment to the first-to-fightfirst-to-support units. There are three approaches that the USAR is following that impact the equipping of units. This project will look at the three approaches, their differences and similarities and how they help equip USAR units. For the USAR to become a more relevant and strategic force in the 2lst Century, it must have a coordinated and integrated published equipping strategy that will provide a capable force to support the NSS and NMS.
