Abstract : Since the concept of an American Federal Reserve Force originated with General George Washington, the United States Army Reserve (USAR) has steadily evolved into the relevant and engaged force of today. The USAR of today provides the US Army with the preponderance of its combat service and combat service support, echelons above corps and division forces. This USAR supports the National Security and Military Strategies through worldwide deployments and the accomplishment of a wide variety of domestic missions. A critical element to this future success of the USAR is the availability and placement of the Full Time Support force. The USAR will continue as an integrated partner in Army XXI and for the Army After Next.
