Abstract : As fiscal austerity continues to impact each U.S. Army component's readiness posture, the U.S. Army Reserve (USAR) realized the need to diversify the means to obtain training opportunities for the reserve force. One of the many innovative opportunities for soldiers, leaders, and units is the USAR's Private Public Partnership Program (P3). This program has three lines of effort (LOE), all of which work towards maintaining the operational readiness of the USAR. The collective element of the program, titled P3 Unit Readiness, serves to advance the geographic combatant commander's (GCC) building partner capacity activities while providing the USAR units training opportunities. This thesis sought to validate whether P3, in particular, the unit readiness LOE, provides the USAR an increased capability when supporting an Army service component command and/or GCC's security cooperation activities and/or programs. Secondly, the thesis examined whether the P3 provides opportunities for USAR to maintain its readiness posture.
