The United States Army’s reserve component has transformed from a strategic force to a fully operational organization as the military efforts in the Global War on Terrorism have escalated. This transition came with significant costs and is particularly unsustain-able as deployment opportunities continue to decline. This capstone provides historical context to this problem while quantitatively and qualitatively evaluating a proposal that would refocus the Reserve’s mission in an attempt to perpetually retain the present heightened level of readiness.
