About this product
- DescriptionThe 2006 Quadrennial Defense review has mandated Reserve Component Operationalization. The high cost of manpower, combined with the absolute requirement of funding operations, leaves each service little funds for recapitalizing (modernizing) their equipment. Relieving the overwhelming burden personnel places upon service budgets makes it very appealing for the Department of Defense to cash in on reserve forces by using them in an increasing operational capacity. Making a reserve force that is operational as well as strategic, however, is difficult because of several legal and logistical problems posed by the strategiconly nature of U.S. Codes Title 10 and Title 32.This paper is an executive summary analysis of critical issues pertinent to amending U.S. Code Titles 10 and 32. It does t attempt to propose the exact wording for new legislation, but is rather an analysis of limitations currently imposed by Titles 10 and 32 with respect to operationalization and the effects of these practices on Guardsmen and Reservists and their employers. Looking at the needs of the services, reservists/guardsmen, and their employers, this analysis explores the benefit and pitfalls of operationalization through the adaptation of operational reserve units and operational reservists/guardsmen. This analysis indicates that legally defined operational reserve units and operational reservists, in addition to a strategic reserve, has the potential to improve force efficiency, and concludes that in order to make this sustainable, a new social compact that guarantees a level of predictably for all involved is required.
