Abstract : This Strategy Research Project recommends a new Army National Guard (ARNG) force structure which will successfully accomplish current missions and serve the Total Army's requirements for the future. This study begins with a review of our current National Security Strategy, which sets forth goals and missions of the Department of Defense. The study then addresses these related questions: (1) What is the readiness status of the Total Army today? (2) What is the basis of the Army's current force structure? And (3) is the ARNG currently combat ready? Analysis of these issues supports a recommendation for a new ARNG force structure.
