Abstract:

The U.S military has repeatedly been unprepared to execute its primary mission at the outbreak of hostilities. We have been prepared for the initial outbreak of any war. I think we have not been prepared for the aftermath of the invasion. We, the United States, have a bad habit of not really learning from history. My question would be why we dont Is it our leadership that should understand Do our military leaders learn from our past mistakes We spend a lot of time in our schools studying previous lessons learned.
