- Full Report:
Some actions have been taken and others planned on 1975 recommendations to improve the efficiency of reserve training.
In a few instances, the Secretaries of Transportation and the Services have reduced training schedules for units with sufficient postmobilization time to upgrade their proficiency or for individual reservists whose military jobs are easy to learn. The services are generally not in favor of reducing scheduled training for units or individual reservists. Actions which have been taken to improve the use of available training time include: reduction of administrative workload on unit commanders, reevaluation and reduction of general military activities, situating high priority units where they can train with essential equipment, and increasing mutual support between the active services and the reserves.
