Abstract : This compilation of writings by General Dempsey - six articles published in ARMY magazine from October 2010 to March 2011, plus the speech he delivered at AUSA's 2011 Winter Symposium in February - captures the mutual focus of the Chief and his TRADOC commander on what our Army must do to shape itself for the future. There is recognition that our Army is always a force in transition, that it will expand and contract, train and deploy, and perpetually modify its Tables of Organization and Equipment. But the primary imperative for our leaders must be to care for the Soldiers and families who have endured so much for the country they love. That said, the Army and its leadership must win, learn, focus, adapt and win again - win the conflicts they face, learn better and faster than their enemies, focus on the fundamentals, adapt as an institutional imperative and, when called upon, win again.
