Abstract : The Army's enduring mission is to protect and defend our Nation's vital security interests and to provide support to civil authorities in response to domestic emergencies. This requires an expeditionary, campaign-quality Army capable of dominating across the full spectrum of conflict, at any time, in any environment and against any adversary for extended periods of time. To do this the Army must continually review its structure and capabilities to ensure it remains adaptive and responsive to the evolving world security environment. While maintaining our mission focus on preparing forces and building readiness for counterinsurgency operations in Iraq and Afghanistan, the Army must remain ready to provide the Combatant Commanders with the forces and capabilities they need for full spectrum operations anywhere in the world both now and in the future. The 2008 Army Modernization Strategy provides a summary of the ends, ways and means through which the Army will equip itself and continue to modernize in support of this end. It describes the operational environment an era of persistent conflict and the Army's newest doctrine for dominating in that environment. It describes the challenges the Army is facing as it executes the current fight while preparing for the future, and the imperatives established by our senior leaders for restoring balance to the force. Finally, it details the four Elements of Modernization the specific ways in which the Army's equipping and modernization efforts support rebalancing the force and integrating capabilities necessary to ensure our success across the range of operations, from peacetime engagement to major combat operations.
