This report explains the Department of Defense manpower program incorporated in the amended President's Budget for FY 1989. The report is organized into two major parts and three annexes that are submitted separately. The annexes are sent to Congress at the same time as this report. The structure of our armed forces is based on the DoD Total Force Policy which recognizes that all elements of the structure contribute to success. Those elements include the Active and Reserve Components, civilian workforce, and retired military, host nation support, and DoD contractors. Each Service chapter explains why military manpower is assigned to either the Active or the Reserve components. This section communicates our overall policy toward Defense manpower in general. Mobilization manpower is the increased manpower we need above our current peacetime strength to mobilize and conduct wartime military operations. Additional military and civilian personnel are necessary to bring our current peacetime forces up to their full wartime strengths; to man activated units, ships, and squadrons; and to replace casualties. Defense Planning and Programming Categories (DPPCs) are used throughout this report to describe and explain the defense manpower program. All three types of Defense manpower are allocated to specific DPPCs, no position being counted more than once.
