Ongoing debates on the role, size, structure, and use of the Army Reserve and National Guard eventually will lead to decisions that likely will affect the ability of the Nation to successfully fight and win both its current and future wars. To assist in exploring Reserve Component issues, the Center for Strategic Leadership hosted a dialogue in August 2003 among seven retired general officers representing service in the Active Army, the Army Reserve, and the Army National Guard. Selected insights from their discussions are found in this paper.
