The purpose was to gain commonality of numbers, specifically the cost of active component and reserve component soldiers so we could meet three objectives: (1) Conduct a comprehensive analysis on the Business Case for Operationalizing the Reserve Component; (2) establish common Army costing baselines to compare Active and Reserve Component costs; and (3) gain leadership agreement (AC, ARNG
, and USAR) so those leaders could accurately engage the Office of the Secretary of Defense and other agencies outside the department.
To make matters worse, pay problems associated with the ARNG
and USAR pay process grew exponentially as the role of RC units increased after the terrorist attacks of 11 September 2001.
Although it is very difficult in peacetime to replicate combat recovery operations, ARNG
unit commanders should place a high priority on getting assigned Soldiers qualified with additional skill identifier H8, wheeled vehicle recovery, and conducting realistic premobilization recovery training using code H (unserviceable) wheeled and combat vehicles.
For the ARNG
, this means it should continue to modernize all 54 of its state-level WANs to the new GIG standards and eliminate its Legacy Systems in order to become a fully compliant member of the DoD's secure, worldwide GIG network solution.
As part of an ARNG

Army commands, Army service component commands and direct reporting units will make formal evaluations on their next lower commands (division and/or corps) annually for active Army, and bi-annually for ARNG
The Chemical Corps currently consists of about 35 percent Regular Army, 28 percent USAR, and 37 percent ARNG
Calendar year 2008 was the Regiment's best recruiting year ever as we approved and/or accessed 75 Active Army, ARNG
, and USAR Soldiers to be engineer warrant officers.
Active component units with brigade S-1s that have undergone PSDR likely will not be so fortunate as to have resident USAR or Army National Guard (ARNG
) subject matter experts (though a number of BCT S-1s will be responsible for ensuring that ARNG
and USAR units that fall under their deployed task organizations receive the same level of EPS as Active Army units).
The 267th Military Police Company, Tennessee Army National Guard (ARNG
), had the honor of being one of the first Tennessee ARNG
units in Iraq and in Baghdad.
Elements of the 3-265 Florida Army National Guard, 1-204 Massachusetts ARNG
, and 1-200 New Mexico ARNG
continue to support Operation CLEAR SKIES in our nation's capitol.
