The 2003 United States Army Posture Statement
Reserve Component Full-Time Support (FTS)

Today, more than 50% of our Soldiers are in the Reserve Component (RC). The GWOT and Homeland Defense are significant undertakings that demand a high level of resourcing. The RC has been Key to our success in these operations. To ensure The Army’s RC continues to meet ever-increasing demands with trained and ready units, The Army plans to increase Full-Time Support authorizations 2% each year through FY12, increasing the FTS from the current level of 69,915 to a level of 83,046. The Army recognizes additional Full-Time Support authorizations as the number one priority of the Army National Guard and Army Reserve leadership.
