Abstract : The USRA III Study is to assist HQDA in transitioning from an individual to a unit replacement system. The assignment of combat arms battalions to regiments resulted in unequal career opportunities for soldiers serving in those positions. Combat arms positions in organizations other than the regimental battalions were not affiliated with any regiment. Using a sequential linear goal programming model the study distributed the extra-regimental CMF 11, 13 and 19 positions to equalize individual career opportunities. (Author)
