SUMMARY

Since the events of September 11, 2001, aviation in the Army National Guard has been simultaneously supporting strategic initiatives such as transformation, new equipment fielding, Homeland Defense and Security missions, State Active Duty requests, Counter- Drug Operations, and operations supporting overseas contingency operations.

This AY-09 USAWC Resident Student author examines Army National Guard Aviation to determine if the force structure can remain balanced as an effective and efficient operational force while maintaining the OPTEMPO in support of overseas contingencies, Homeland Defense & Security, and State Active Duty missions in view of recent changes of the mobilization policy, implementation of the Army Force Generation Model, and competing budgets.
