Figure A-3

As of September 30, 2004, the Army had 4756 Active Component Soldiers assigned to Title XI positions. The Army goal is 100 percent of the total (officer and enlisted authorizations) 5000 personnel authorized for the AC/RC Program. Although constrained by ongoing support to the Global War on Terror, the Active Army is maintaining AC/RC program strength and plans to maintain not less than an aggregate strength level of 90 percent (officer and NCO) during the FY05 period as addressed in the FY05 NDAA. Army G-1 and U.S. Army Human Resources Command carefully tracks fill of Title XI positions (See Figure A-3).
