Another more important initiative is our plan to man some of our active surface combatants at 80% of active manning, relying on selected reserve personnel to fill the remaining billets upon mobilization.”
Admittingly, there are some potential problems involved in the 80/20 concept, most of which center around the interrelated factors of maintenance and operational tempo. The concept is predicated on the assumption that the understrength active crew, augmented by reserves during drill periods, would be able to maintain their ship in adequate material condition and conduct the required training for basic combat missions.”

NRF ships also have active-duty fleet support assignments which means that they are occasionally not in port when the reservists arrive to drill. Some reservists have driven long distances to the ship only to find themselves temporarily assigned to the Naval Reserve Center. When they report aboard the NRF ships, the active-duty personnel assigned as part of the ship's crew sometimes resent their arrival, feeling that if they were assigned to a regular fleet ship they would probably not have to work on the weekends. Because of these conditions, those required to drill aboard NRF ships are often dissatisfied and are frequently perceived as poor performers.
Under the NRF Frigate authorizations, the crew consists of approximately 60 percent active duty and 40 percent inactive-duty reservists for FFG-7 class ships, and approximately 50 percent active duty and 50 percent inactive-duty reservists for FF-1052 class ships. Not only is there a manpower problem supporting the existing Naval Reserve Force ships (DDs and MSOs), but there is a future manpower problem of even larger proportions in manning the new FF-1052 / FFG-7 class ships.
SUMMARY OF FINDINGS
13. Sea pay plus a $10.00 per drill bonus is adequate compensation for tne relatively more arduous drill requirements of being assigned to a NRF ship. However, this compensation is a necessary but not sufficient condition for long term retention. Reservists are not primarily motivated by money, provided that an equitable compensation level is achieved. Rather, drilling reservists are motivated to maintain their affiliation primarily through sound leadership and management within the reserve unit.

6th QRMC Report - Volume 1 AUGUST 1988 Unit Incentive Pay for Enlisted Selected Reservists
The 6th QRIC recommends that legislation be prepared to permit the Secretary of the Navy to authorize payment, under a two year test program, of "Naval Reserve Fleet Pay" to enlisted Selected Reserve members serving on NRF ships.
Section 305a of title 37, United States Code, defines sea duty as "duty performed by a member while permanently or temporarily assigned to a ship, ship-based staff, or ship-based aviation unit, ... the primary mission of which is accomplished underway." No distinction in law is made between active or reserve personnel who may be assigned to the same ship. In fact, Selected Reservists in the Naval Reserve meet the same qualifications as their active counterparts; namely, they are permanently assigned to the NRF ship, perform duties aboard that ship, and the ship has been designated under regulations of the Secretary of the Navy as a ship whose primary mission is accomplished underway. Nevertheless, these individuals accrue creditable sea duty time only during periods of ADT. The Navy acknowledges that the existing system of sea duty computation may be inequitable, but has concluded that credit for sea duty time is linked by statute to eligibility for Career Sea Pay.
This PBD included a proposed Selected Reserve Unit Incentive Pay. This initiative would authorize the payment of an incentive pay to Selected Reserve enlisted personnel who voluntarily affiliate and train with certain high priority units which are inadequately manned. It would permit payment of a $10 incentive pay per drill period for five drills per month. This Navy initiative was developed to help meet manpower needs for personnel assigned to the Naval Reserve Fleet (NRF) and for hospital corpsman assigned to Marine Corps Reserve units.

---------1997 is the year still assigned to the ffg and someone in the government is stills debating if you at 21 need health care..or what about vA support????!!!!!!!!!-------
American Forces Press Service WASHINGTON, Nov. 24, 1997 Secretary of Defense William S. Cohen said Nov. 18 the summit will address the full spectrum of health care issues, entitlements and legislative policies affecting the readiness of reserve components in the post-Cold War world. In Phase I, slated for late November in Washington, summit participants will evaluate prevailing laws and policy relating to reserve component health care. Participants will identify legislative and policy changes necessary to ensure members of the reserve components receive health care benefits that are consistent with the increased reliance on today's reserve force. "We have a vested interest in the health readiness of our reserve component personnel," said Dr. Ed Martin, acting assistant secretary of defense for health affairs. Beginning late December, the second phase of the summit will address incapacitation and disability issues. In mid-January 1998, the third phase will address reserve component access to VA benefits and programs. Recognizing the increased reliance on the reserve components in recent years, Cohen said, "We must ensure their medical readiness to achieve a truly integrated total force. I am pleased that this summit is a partnership effort - with the DoD, the private sector and VA all working together." (from a DoD release) Contact Author
-------------------Does reality go somewhere? What is happening to someone with a reserve enlistment---Or is it ignored as it did not harm them---
--------------More reports---those pesky reserves, we want to save money by making these enlistments, then we use them more and they are getting injured?? And that cost money??? Lets study that!!!! / Don’t forget to send that humanitarian aid to africa ok! Or Mexico!

Means of Improving the Provision of Uniform and Consistent Medical and Dental Care to Members of the Reserve Components
Report To Congress
Prepared by: Office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense For Reserve Affairs Office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense For Health Affairs
INTRODUCTION Section 746 of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year 1997 directed the Department of Defense (DoD), in consultation with the Secretary of Transportation, to conduct a study and report to Congress on the means of improving the provision of uniform and consistent medical and dental care to members of the Reserve components (RCs). In response to this congressional requirement, two major areas were identified and evaluated: (1) reserve component health care and (2) force health protection. These topics encompass the circumstances under which medical and dental care may be provided to Reserve component service members and the means of meeting medical readiness standards for deploying those service members. To ensure a comprehensive review of the many issues related to the provision of medical care to reservists, the Department established a working summit, which included representatives from the Office of the Secretary of Defense, the Active and Reserve components and the DoD medical community. Additionally, to support this evaluation, the Department also contracted with Birch & Davis Associates, Inc. The following report is submitted in response to section 746 and reflects the department�s assessments and recommendations. The report develops recommendations for ensuring that medical treatment, entitlements, and readiness for RC members are sufficient and in parity with those provided to Active component (AC) members. The recommendations will help ensure uniform and consistent health care and related benefits for RC members that correlate with duty status and risk of illness or injury. BACKGROUND During the Cold War, a reservist incurred limited exposure to potential hazards during periods of duty (active or inactive duty). The focus for the RC was on training for mobilization. The Reserve components consisted principally of a force whose use upon mobilization would be to provide augmentation and replacement manpower for the Active components. In contrast, the focus of the Active components was on fulfilling operational requirements. Since the end of the Cold War, and with the drawdown of the force, the role of the Reserve components has changed, and the use of the RCs in the performance of operational missions has increased dramatically. Reservists are now providing daily support to military operations around the world. This increased use results in a significant increase in exposure to injury, illness, disease, and death in the line of duty. As shown in Exhibit 1, Reserve component man-day contributions to Total Force missions have increased ten-fold from a 1989 benchmark. At the same time, the overall strength of the Reserve forces has decreased by nearly one quarter. As a result, the average Reservist�s exposure to injury and illness has increased significantly. Secretary Cohen�s goal for the 21st century is a seamless Total Force that integrates active and reserve components and provides the national command authority the flexibility and interoperability necessary for the full range of military operations. To achieve this goal, all residual barriers, structural and cultural, to integration of the Active and Reserve components of the force must be eliminated. Current legislation and policy reflect the historic use of reservists by structuring medical and dental care, incapacitation, and disability entitlements according to length of assignment: 30 days or less or more than 30 days. However, it is the performance of duty, not the length of duty, that creates the risk for harm. Reservists now work side by side with AC members and perform the same missions as AC members. Yet, when a reservist is injured performing one of those missions, entitlement to health care, pay, and family support is different from that of the AC member. RC benefits currently are based on the length of duty rather than the performance of duty. The increased exposure to risk associated with increased reliance on the RC has resulted in an increasing number of line of duty injuries to reservists and has served to highlight the disparity between Active and Reserve component medical benefits and entitlements, despite exposure to similar levels of risk. For example, on April 1, 1997, an Air Force Reserve C-130 aircraft crashed at Tegucigalpa, Honduras. Seven RC crew members survived this crash with incapacitating injuries. Although the survivors were entitled to incapacitation pay and medical treatment, prevailing restrictions precluded them from being retained on active duty for treatment of their injuries past the period of duty prescribed in their orders. Because length of duty status determines entitlements, their family members were not eligible for health care through the military�s TRICARE system. An Active or Reserve service member on orders for more than 30 days would have received retirement credit, pay and allowances, medical treatment for line of duty (LOD) injuries, comprehensive medical care for non-LOD conditions, and comprehensive medical care for family members. One survivor, who is married with three children under age five, noted, "I never thought in a million years that my family and I would not be covered if an accident occurred while serving my country." He also stated that, "If the Reservist/Guardsman knows that in a time of need, neither he nor his family will be protected, retention will be a serious problem�how can I continue to put my family in this predicament?"
