Pagination or Media Count:
America s National Guard remains ready, reliable, and accessible. As members of an operational force, regularly used by the President and State Governors, the Soldiers and Airmen of the National Guard contribute daily to our nation s overseas and domestic security objectives. The National Guard is at a crossroads. As we approach Fiscal Year 2012 FY12, a national debate is addressing the most cost-effective way to run the nation, the federal government, and the Department of Defense. One of the main issues concerning our military forces involves determining the appropriate mix of active duty and reserve forces. To that end, we need to ascertain the correct balance of utilization rates somewhere between the current National Guard operations tempo and what is sustainable over the long term.
