Abstract:

Since the end of the 1991 Gulf War, both reserve components have continued to work to increase readiness and carry out even greater responsibilities. There are numerous reasons for the increased use of the reserves in the last dozen years, such as a much smaller overall military and a much more extensive commitment of American power around the globe. These additional reasons should not be overlooked the reserves have proven, time after time, their ability to remain ready, respond swiftly and accomplish assigned missions.
