Default U.S.Army CAPSTONE Alignments circa 1989

Though my expertise is the British Army, I recently delved into the U.S.Army in 1989.
Now the Army CAPSTONE program was started in 1979, to align RC units with wartime missions in Europe (NATO), Korea, and SW Asia, along with missions in CONUS & Theatre Defense. I found some interesting stuff recently in the minutes of some Defense Authorization Committees and State Adjutant General's reports, along with articles from various Army Branch magazines (Armor, Field Artillery, Etc)
