The attacks on September 11th, 2001 began the Global War on Terror and resulted in the mobilization of hundreds of thousands of reservists. These mobilizations are expected to continue at their current pace for the foreseeable future. This increase in workload for a part-time force structure must come at a cost. As more frequent and lengthy reserve obligations put stress on soldiers, families, and employers, these volunteers are being forced into a decision between service to nation and family/careers. Recognition of the potential effects on the reserves now will enable timely policy or force structure changes to ward off disaster and prepare the military forces for success when the nation needs them the most.
