Abstract : This report is an unclassified version of the earlier classified report on military readiness. It analyzed military readiness data contained in the Department of Defense's (DOD) Status of Resources and Training System (SORTS) to determine if the data showed significant changes in readiness since 1990-a year of peak readiness. This report provides readiness information for the four military services. Specifically, it (1) summarizes the reported overall readiness status of all military units from January 1,1990, to March 31,1995; (2) assesses readiness trends of selected units from each service for the same period, and, where applicable, discusses reported readiness problems experienced throughout a service and by the selected units; and (3) explains significant changes in reported readiness of the selected units.
