EP022: A Deep Dive into the Total Army Concept (Part 2)


In this week’s episode we bring back MAJ Carla Raisler and 1LT Brock Young for Part 2 of A Deep Dive into the Total Army Concept. We will discuss the challenges the Guard and Reserve components face while training for unit readiness and maintaining individual and collective competence. Our guests provide us with a unique perspective on how they tackle this challenge given limited time and mounting requirements the Guard and Reserve forces operate in. We also will look at efforts between the active duty and reserve/national guard forces to train and share resources and what implications that will have for our future Army. This series is just as important for any active duty leader as it is for a Guard or Reserve leader. With an increase, and need, for a more agile and innovative force that can provide a flexible response, the management and utilization of resources is key for successful execution.
