Abstract : The Secretary of the Army has established the vision of a Seamless Army. This thesis will focus on erasing the traditional lines which have evolved among the three components of the U.S. Army (Active, Guard and Reserve) and suggest a framework based on ways and means to overcome existing barriers. Non-traditional brigades and divisions which combine active and reserve component units may give the Army the ways and means to satisfy the National Military Strategy with decreasing resources.
