T
he
national military strategyrequires
our
Army to
deter
aggres
sion and,
should deterrence
fail,
defendthe
nation's
vital
interests.The force
must
be
capable
of
win
ning two major conflicts at
nearly
the
same time
or
participate
in avariety
of
operations other than war.Office
of
the Secretary
of
Defense'sbottom-up review
of
military force
structure
proposes greater
reli
ance
on reserve forces. As force structuredeliberations continue, the resultant
force will
emphasizereadiness,
deployability,
lethality,
versatility,andsustainability within
a
constrained resource environment.
Thisregional crisis response
strategy
requires
trained, ready,
rapidly deliverable forces. With theCold War era now a historical remnant, the Army
is
challenged to develop
capabilities
to
deal
with
nontradi
tional
roles
and missionswhile transitioning to a continental
United
States-based, power-pro
jection
Total Army. The Reserve
Component,
both Army NationalGuard (ARNG) and the U.S. ArmyReserve (USAR), must maintain aforce structure capable
of
executingthe
national military strategy.This article addresses the role
of
the Reserve Component, specificallythe ARNG Aviation Training Sites
(AATSs)andtheir
contribution
to
the
Total Army. Army Aviation's
warfighting concept remains
stead
fast
in complementing other combatsystems and, ultimately, achieves a
combined
arms
synergism which
supports the Army's modernizationobjectives. Maneuver
in
the third di
mension expands
the
Army's
ver
satility
in
achievingthese objec
tives by enabling the Army
to
fight
simultaneously
throughout
the ex
panseof
battle space and
to
quicklychange roles and missions as operations dictate. Clearly, the ReserveComponent must complement theActive force and be capable
of
performing these missions.To prepare for our mission, aviation
training
and
leader developmentstrategy continues
to
emphasize
individual, crew, and collective
training, and
also
includes
initiatives
to enhance combat effectiveness in spite
of
declining resources.
BothActive
and
Reserve
Component
