Abstract : An important yet unheralded mission, which fell to the Army Reserve in Operation DESERT STORM, was to augment the Army's training base by providing support to the Training and Doctrine Command (TRADOC). TRADOC is the second largest of the Army's Major Commands, and it has the responsibility to develop doctrine on how to fight, design units and organizations to do the fighting, and train and educate military personnel to do the fighting and support the fighters. Through one of its major missions--training--TRADOC has an immediate and recurring impact on every soldier in the Total Army. The Army Reservists assigned to TRADOC and supporting that command during Operations DESERT SHIELD and DESERT STORM, also left a significant imprint on the soldiers of all components, as they geared up to meet Iraq's challenge to the states of the Persian Gulf. This monograph explains how TRADOC met its own challenges in mobilization support and expanding the Army's training capacity, assisted ably by the Army Reserve.
