Abstract : On May 23, 1996 the Secretary of the Army approved the results of the Army National Guard Division Redesign Study. An integral part of the results called for two AC/ARNG Integrated Divisions. Each AC/ARNG Integrated Division would consist of three ARNG Enhanced Readiness Brigades and an active component (AC) division headquarters. The US Army Training and Doctrine Command (TRADOC) was tasked to conduct a viability assessment of the AC/ARNG Integrated Division concept and focus on merits and implementation issues. Three proposed alternatives were developed to satisfy the intent of the Secretary of the Army: (1) Alternative 1 was an AC AOE division MHC, a division base (decremented to avoid redundancies contained within the brigades), and three assigned ERBs. (2) Alternative 2 was an AC table of distribution and allowances (TDA) HHC and three assigned ERBs. The division HHC does not deploy with the ERBs. (3) Alternative 3 was an AOE division with an AC HHC. The assigned ERBs are reconfigured to task organized AOE designs.
