"Since the end of conscripted military service in the 1970s, the United States has struggled with the challenges, demands, opportunities, and costs of not only an all-volunteer force, but with the enhanced expectation of--and reliance upon--the Reserves and National Guard. This bibliography highlights that transformation's unique impact on readiness, recruiting, training, retention, diversity issues, quality of life, leadership development, and the relationship between the all-volunteer force and the citizens it serves. With the exception of certain notable materials, resources listed in this bibliography are dated 2008 to the present. All items are available through the USAWC [U.S. Army War College] Library. For your convenience, we have added U.S. Army War College Library call numbers, Internet addresses, or database links at the end of each entry. Websites were accessed February 2013."
