Abstract : This paper provides a look at proposed Active Component (AC) and Army National Guard (ARNO) Hybrid Divisions. It examines the structure, integration and processes involved in creating and maintaining these divisions. This paper explores the advantages of creating the Hybrid Divisions by looking at cost savings, professional development opportunities and the possibilities for seamless integration. This paper looks at trends with regards to Department of Defense budgets both current and projected. Focus is placed on downsizing, its effect on readiness and the need to provide a transitional force structure. Future requirements coupled with current world conditions provide opportunities to adjust force structure and continue modernization programs. Discussions on appropriate troop strength in the Active Army and in the Army National Guard are presented as are missions suited to both Active and Reserve components. Recommendations are made based solely on the author's assessment of the material researched for this paper.
