This monograph examines causal links between differential attendance rates in the Armys reserve components. It also seeks to discover effective policies and procedures that reduce unsatisfactory participant rates in the reserve components, comparing the effectiveness of federal and state civil and military codes regarding attendance. Unsatisfactory participants constitute more than five percent of the total strength of the Army Reserve, wasting approximately 150.4 million per year. Efforts by commanders and the streamlining of administrative processes, specifically the removal of non-participants from the Selected Reserve, are effective at reducing nonparticipation. Efforts to increase the number of trained and ready reserve component Soldiers increases the ability of the reserve components to fulfill both domestic and international missions.
