To help reduce shortages of pretrained individuals that could occur in the event of a full national mobilization, the Army established a retiree recall program in 1981. The September 1992 exercise at Ft. Riley was one in a continuing series of Certain Sage exercises to evaluate the effectiveness of the system. Exercise participants filled duty assignments corresponding closely with those they would likely fill during an actual mobilization. Evaluation instruments included the following: a retiree skill questionnaire, daily observation report (evaluator work sheet), evaluator's questionnaires on participants and on duty position and counterpart, supervisor/counterpart evaluations of exercise participant and of duty position, and participant's exercise evaluation questionnaire. Findings indicated that most retirees felt confident they had retained the ability to perform well. Retirees gave adequacy of the inservice job orientations and continuity files high ratings, whereas their active duty supervisor/counterparts and the evaluator rated them somewhat lower. Rankings for the value of the orientations and continuity files closely paralleled those for adequacy. Supervisor/counterparts tended to rate overall performance of duty highly. Retirees and evaluators were slightly more critical. The challenge identified for the Army was to keep in contact with those retirees most likely to be recalled during a national emergency and to maintain their readiness. (YLB)
