Abstract:

To protect the interests of the United States, the military must be prepared to defend the nations freedom and protect the needs of the American people. For the past 10 years, the Army Reserve has been active in providing combat support and combat service support to sustain mobilization during the War on Terrorism. However, this effort has not come without a challenge. The Army Reserve has managed to supply units for Overseas Contingency Operations OCO through the cross-leveling of personnel and equipment. Though this method is working, it should be abandoned for future missions. To increase readiness, the Army Reserve will have to redefine its efforts and become operationally ready by having the required personnel and equipment to do its mission.
