Abstract : Army turbulence of 1992 consisted of almost 300,000 soldiers moving on orders and another 86,000 departing active duty. The movement of this magnitude and the importance of retaining strategic readiness concerned all leaders. Leaders feared a return of the hollowness of the 1970's. PERSCOM managed the distribution of the Army soldiers in a successful manner; the majority of soldiers were in the right position to assure readiness. Individual skills are well trained and honed to a fine edge. Collective skills were degraded due to the turbulence, but are recovering quickly. The strategic readiness of the Army was sustained; today, it is a trained and ready force
