Abstract : The problem was to determine the role that Active Army advisors to the Army National Guard (ARNG) should play in the Total Force Concept. Data was obtained by extensive research of literature, documents, and several interviews. The recent reorganization of the Army, was, in part, recognition that the Advisor program, by itself, was not capable of providing the degree of assistance required by the ARNG to meet its readiness requirements under the Total Force Concept. Research reveals a lack of experience in the ARNG Officer Corps to be the single most critical obstacle in the ARNG's efforts to assume missions previously assigned to Active units.
