Abstract : This Report is produced from each Reserve Component's input to the Reserve Components Common Personnel Data System (RCCPDS). The primary objective of the RCCPDS is twofold, that is, it provides a: (1) standardized and (2) centralized data base containing personnel information on all members of the Reserve Forces. Established in this fashion, the system has become the official source for Reserve Component strength (in July 1975) and the official source for accession/loss/reenlistment information (in July 1976). The information summarized and displayed in this Report reflects the official DoD position and as such it forms the basis for manpower planning, strength accounting and budgeting throughout the Department. Changes are continuing to be made in the RCS 1147/1148 Report to improve the data layout and content. The new Reserve Component Category Designators and Training Retirement Category Designators are displayed on pages 6 and 7.
