Abstract : Deployments during Desert Storm, Somalia and Haiti produced significant lessons learned that should improve the process of mobilization and deployment of United States Army Reserve Component soldiers in the future. This study explores the preparatory phase of mobilization, assessing whether changes made to improve the process are consistent with the lessons learned. It argues that while shortfalls were identified during past mobilizations, recent changes have not achieved the desired end of streamlining mobilization. The research contrasts the primary factors impacting non-deployable Reserve Component soldiers in the recent past with the current status of the soldiers in their respective units today. The study finally proposes solutions to readiness shortfalls.
