Abstract : My idea paper was written to enhance the comptroller reservist Top Dollar program, a program developed in the wake of the Persian Gulf War to train financial management personnel for real-world contingency operations. Several recommendations are made that may improve the readiness of our comptroller reservists. Some of these recommendations, such as having several civilian positions in finance converted to air reserve technician positions and eliminating total quality management as a training tool, are controversial. Others, you will find, are minor but worthy of consideration. In any case, my suggestions are for improving the military readiness of our Air Force Reserve (AFRES) comptroller reservists.
