Eight years of unwanted war in Asia, coupled with social upheaval and an unsympathetic press at home, have created what has been called An Army in Anguish. This essay first examines the issues that have contributed to the current image of the US Army. Recognition of the problem and current corrective actions are next discussed. Lastly, proposals that would rejuvenate the Army from within and polish its image are introduced. Throughout the history of the Army, professionalism has been the single most important ingredient in its organization and operation. An improved image will require an extra portion of professionalism.
