Abstract : This study investigates the effectiveness of the Army system for preserving unit heritage. Heritage is valuable to units and the Army, and given the cyclical nature of the size and organization structure, the Army requires an effective preservation system. The thesis defines unit heritage and establishes heritage value to units and the Army. System institutions, organizations, and agencies are identified, along with their historical development, roles and relationships. Collected Army regulations, 1939-1993, are reviewed and their development and evolution portray shifting requirements and responsibilities over the period.
