Abstract:

The lack of integrated Navy force planning, educationtraining requirements for Reserve Officers, and Navy Reserve organizational rules limit the effectiveness of Navy Reserve support to the joint operational level of command OLC. The Navy Reserve is waiting on force planning guidance from Navy leadership that history has shown is unlikely to be given. The quantity and type of Navy Reserve support provided to the OLC is not recognizable by existing manpower accounting. Current manpower billet structure will be determined and analyzed to provide needed information for recommendations and future study. Tracking of Navy Reserve Officers operational employment since September 2001 has not been done with any fidelity or level of detail. Analysis of the awarded joint experience qualifications will provide insight on the employment of the Navy RC Officer corps and if additional training and education is required.
