Abstract : Since the creation of the Individual Ready Reserve (IRR), there has been an ongoing controversy about its training: That controversy has focused on several questions: Should they be trained? Who should be trained? Can they be trained? This study explores the controversy and identifies what the IRR is and who its members are. It also identifies what the mobilization requirements are and what part of the IRR should be trained and when. The recommendations resulting from this study are that, with the current network in place, the Army identify what the proper mix of MOS and skill level is for the M+90 shortage of personnel recently trained within the last 12 months. The Army should plan to train approximately 92,000 IRR soldiers during peacetime and use the early post-mobilization potential of the Training Divisions to train as many of the IRR as possible before the new draftees begin arriving. In addition, the Army should develop a standardized inspection plan for the IGs to ensure quality training for the IRR soldier during peacetime.
