Abstract : This report is an executive summary of a study examining personnel readiness of the Selected Reserve Components from FY86-FY94. This summary sets the overall findings in a policy context and highlights their importance. In addition, it points to some potential areas of concern with respect to reserve manning in the future. The study builds on earlier work on reserve personnel readiness that was based on the FY89 inventory of reserve personnel and was reported in Grissmer et al. (1994a). That report highlighted a potential constraint to relying on the reserve force: the likelihood of future limits on the availability of experienced formerly active-duty personnel for reserve service resulting from the active drawdown.
