A 2002 Department of Defense DoD report stated that the military services developed or adopted many innovative approaches to unit structures and organization as force size changed and operational tempo increased.1 The report suggested that organizational concepts leading to a more exible, capable force must be implemented more broadly to better capitalize on the capabilities and strengths of the reserve components. In particular, such organizational concepts include blending active component AC and reserve component RC workforces in military units. We de ne blending as any arrangement or event that brings active and reserve manpower together within organizations for a common purpose. At the organizational level where mission work is actually done, there is interest in workforce integration between the components.
