Cost-Effective Risk Mitigation
The Army Reserve comprises 20 percent of the Total Army for 6 percent of its budget. Now, in an era of reduced resources, the Army Reserve provides the most efficient and cost-effective way to mitigate the risks inherent in drawdown. The Army Reserve is the Army’s major source of trained units and individual Soldiers. It seamlessly integrates and generates essential assets and capabilities across the nation and globally to complement and enable the Total Army and the Joint Force.
