A TURBULENT TRANSITION: THE ARMY NATIONAL GUARD AND ARMY RESERVE'S MOVEMENT TO AN OPERATIONAL RESERVE

VIEWS: 14 PAGES: 22

Since 9/11, the US Military has drawn extensively and continuously from its reserve component. This represents a major shift in the purpose of the reserve. Once characterized as the United States' "strategic reserve," the reserve component has recently transformed into an "operational reserve." This abrupt transition has been accompanied by a multitude of problems. The authors trace the difficulties associated with this transition in US Military policy from Vietnam, through 9/11, to the present day. The article concludes by discussing the long-term feasibility of an "operational reserve." [PUBLICATION ABSTRACT]
