Abstract : In this essay, the author traces the rich legislative history associated with access to Reserve component forces, focusing principally on the post-Cold War period. With active participation by various elements of the federal executive and legislative branches, it presents a study in good government. The debate is continuing and healthy, and one can readily discern its evolving nature. A short discussion of Total Force Policy from its inception in the years following the Vietnam War through the end of the Cold War precedes the body of the paper. It serves as more than an introduction. It ensures that the reader realizes the importance of the dialogue. (AN)
