Abstract : This report examines how and why the introduction of displaced equipment from the Active Army into the Reserve components has an adverse impact on combat readiness. The conclusions are that the United States Army has no standardized methodology for the introduction of equipment into the Reserve Forces, that the overall problem is systemic in nature, and that, while DARCOM cannot solve the systemic problem, actions can be taken to reduce the effects of the problem at the Reserve Component unit level. The report recommends that all major items of equipment transferred to the Reserves be treated as new equipment that life cycle costs be re-examined be introduced in conjunction with a Mission Support Plan, Materiel Fielding Plan, and New Equipment Training.
