Abstract : This study examines the development of the U.S. Army's Cohesion Operational Readiness and Training (COHORT) soldier replacement system. Analysis comparing the COHORT system to the older, and still widely used, Individual Replacement System (IRS) is provided. The study includes a detailed discussion of the positive and negative aspects of the COHORT system for soldiers, their families, and the U.S. Army system. Examination of literature on military unit and family bonding, works on cohesion in military units, and reports of on going studies of COHORT units were all a part of the research effort. Finally, the study examines the current status of the COHORT program and its future utility for the U.S. Army.
