Abstract : Reserve military units and individuals are being used extensively in the post-Cold War era to provide skills absent or insufficient in the Active Components, and to augment or temporarily relieve over-committed active forces. The objective of this study was to establish how best to assure access to Guardsmen and Reservists when they are needed for military operations. It examines alternative ways of getting voluntary access to the needed personnel and suggests the best policies for assuring access. IDA examined recent examples of the use of Reserve volunteers, developed models for using Reserve volunteers, and assessed their relevance to various circumstances.
