The current Reserve Component officer management and education programs have failed to provide the Combatant Commanders with the RC officers they need. These programs will continue to fail unless the Department of Defense DOD addresses specific issues. This paper provides a broad overview of the existing Joint Professional Military Education JPME, outlines the Combatant Commanders requirement for RC joint officers and reviews the efforts that have been made to establish a RC joint developmental program. Additionally, this paper considers how these efforts have come up short to date and related issues that could compound the problem. Finally, it presents recommendations, along with associated counter arguments, necessary to provide the Combatant Commanders with the trained RC officers they need.
