Remarkably, the reference compound cNGR appeared initially to be the most lipophilic compound (-3.30 [+ or -] 0.14).
Although coNGR and co[(NGR).sub.4] were not directly compared with cNGR in an in vivo study, both coNGR-based ligands showed a higher uptake than cNGR in the infarcted area.

These events provide a policy and historical context for subsequently assessing the current state of the operational reserve and for determining a future course for further development, including how conclusions and recommendations made by the CNGR can continue to assist DOD in implementing an operational National Guard and Reserve.

In my opinion, based on a careful reading of the DOD and Service responses to the CNGR recommendations, as well as my 18 years as a war college faculty member, cultural prejudice still exists between Active Component and Reserve Component personnel, primarily because of misconceptions about, and misunderstanding of, the RC by the AC.
