Abstract:

The end of the cold war has created numerous challenges regarding our national security. A major challenge is the increased reliance on the Army Reserve Components RC to meet requirements of our National Military Strategy. This paper examines the impact of RC deployments on Army RC recruiting and retention by researching past and current trends and indicators. It includes documentation from various sources that support my findings. This paper only evaluates the impact on the United States Army Reserve USAR, and Army National Guard ARNG units. In an effort to eliminate strategic level decisions that may negatively impact RC recruiting and retention, this paper identifies options and measures that may be used to assess the frequency and methods by which RC units are selected for deployments.
