View Full Version : TIME TO ELIMINATE FTS?

Is it time to eliminate the FTS as a separate community? In today's ever-shrinking budgetary environment can the Navy afford to have a separate distributable community solely to administer to the Reserves? Why can't these billets/positions be folded into the Active Component? (Don't give me the Title 10 Reserve blah-blah. Laws can be changed). Most of these billets would provide enriching shore duty opportunities for Active Component Sailors transferring from Sea Duty. Anyone ordered to an activity with a Reserve Component could receive Reserve entitlement/orientation training enroute. I'd like to hear what others think...
