Abstract:

By employing strategic guidance, the geographical Combatant Commanders CCDR achieve our nations strategic priories. They develop plans to engage their regional areas, ranging from peacetime security cooperation activities to full combat to post-reconstruction activities. A critical component of the theater security process involves shaping the regional environment by conducting peacetime engagement activities As a force provider to the CCDRs, the Army Reserve Components RC participate in many exercises and humanitarian operations. Through the formal Program Objective Memorandum process, the services request funds to support the CCDRs theater engagement activities Although the Active Army is successfully acquiring Operational and Maintenance funds to support these activities, the RCs are under-funded However, a revision of the Program, Planning, Budget, Execution PPBE process will enable the Army RCs to receive adequate funding to assure their continued support of the CCDRs theater engagement activities This SRP recommends several solutions to this problem as a means of enabling the Army RCs support to the CCDRs theater security cooperation activities.
