Abstract : This is a chronological extract form General Edward C. Meyer's term as Chief of Staff of the United States Army from 19 June 1979 to 21 June 1983. The material is drawn from his public record as contained in speech transcripts, annotated drafts, published articles, Congressional testimony, and selected correspondence. The only portion that falls outside these parameters is the initial entry, a single paragraph from his Kermit Roosevelt lectures of early 1979, delivered while he was still a Lieutenant General designated as the next USAREUR Commander. It seems to capture best the thrust of his subsequent four years of service-a focus on enhanced military professionalism. This collection is intended for use in libraries of the war colleges, staff colleges, service and branch schools-those institutions key to General Meyer's concerns about professional development. The table of contents lists all of his public appearances. Those from which extracts are drawn are in bold face and contain a page reference. The index is another entry into the assembled material.
