Abstract : This is one of a series of monographs describing and assessing the role of the United States Army Reserve in the winning of the war in the Persian Gulf. Countless reports have been written and numerous books published about the coalition victory. None have appeared, however, that focus on the valuable contributions of Army Reserve soldiers and civilians to the favorable outcome of the conflict. This monograph and others in the series fill that void. This report on the role of the Army Reserve in ground transportation operations in support of Coalition Forces demonstrates one of the core competencies provided to America's Army by Army Reservists. It is a description of the activation and success achieved by Army Reserve soldiers and units that had the mission to manage and move personnel, supplies, and equipment. It is a story of truckers, railroaders, terminal personnel, planners, and managers both in CONUS and the overseas theater making their contribution to the Total Force.
