EP021: A Deep Dive into the Total Army Concept


In this episode we feature our first interview with members of the Army National Guard/Reserve and explore the total Army Concept. In this first episode of a two part series, we discuss the challenges that Guard units face with conducting training on a condensed timeline and in a resource constrained environment.

We also discuss the unique challenges of serving as a commander in the Army National Guard in which you’re never really “off duty” even though ARNG units drill only one weekend a month. Lastly, we talk about the unique dynamic of Family Readiness Groups in the ARNG.
