Abstract:

The basic question is whether or not CA remains an essential element of the modern Army. After some research to establish the case against CA, the bulk of the paper is based upon the authors interviews andor correspondence with unit Commanders andor Operations and Training Officers of the Fifty-three CA units presently in existence. The author believes that the responses from these sources show the type of training and initiative being exercised in CA units today and that this training is such that it makes CA and the CA concept a vital and necessary part of the modern Army today.
