Abstract : The Army Modernization Plan is a comprehensive, imaginative program of improvement that will guarantee tomorrow's soldiers are equipped and trained for combat with the best tools available. It is an essential demand on the Nation's resources. Military hardware, operational concepts, doctrine, and command initiatives are never absolute and never static. The World War II and Cold War armies required reorganization and restructuring for Vietnam, and the Desert Storm army must be changed if only because other nations and other armies learned lessons in the Persian Gulf also. Their application of modern technology to those lessons will assure that the next battlefield on which we are engaged will be different, perhaps more challenging, certainly an uncertain prospect at the outset.
