Lockwood, Edward W.
MetadataShow full item record
The Global War on Terror (GWOT) since September 2001 has caused an unprecedented use of reserve forces (since the 1950s), in particular the Army National Guard. With GWOT being fought at home and abroad, the military and federal agencies are acting and fighting in unison to accomplish a variety of missions from counter-terrorism to nation building. Transformation is the process of changing the armed forces of the United States to becoming a more capable, less costly military force. Transformation of the Army National Guard (ARNG) concerns more than merely weapons systems and technology. It comprises more than whether or not equipment "cascades" to the Army National Guard from the Active Component (AC). Transformation of the Army National Guard is about creating unique values to the community, the state and the nation in crises. Transformation will result in the change of the types of units the ARNG puts into the field.
