Producing Individual Deployability in the Army National Guard Producing Individual Deployability in the Army National Guard

This summary describes research estimating the impact of changes in unit manning on soldiers’ individual readiness within battalion-sized units of the Army National Guard (ARNG) during periods of foundational readiness (when soldiers are not mobilized for deployment, on deployment, nor recently returned from deployment). The analyses focus on full-time support from soldiers authorized under Title 32 of the United States Code to serve in the Active Guard or Reserve (AGR). IDA quantified the relationship between the individual readiness of drilling soldiers and full-time support from Title 32 AGR soldiers.
