Abstract:

This analysis will demonstrate that the Military Reserves have contributed to the Operational Force, and it is these contributions that should be sustained. As strategies develop to guide the Defense establishment through a period of reduced budgets and changing strategic conditions, it is important to understand how the Reserves contribute to the operational concept. Equally important is an understanding of how this force fits within the Total Force Policy. The study initially includes analysis across all the services to establish total, operational, and strategic concepts however, it ultimately concentrates on the Army and its integration challenges.
