Abstract:

The question examined is how to effect the necessary cuts in noncombat Army in the field personnel to meet stated force objectives. It is suggested that the historical record in this area is a poor one. Specific examples of several different approaches currently being considered are offered. These indicate that past mistakes will probably be repeated, but that some prudent actions are possible. The additional risks associated with likely future wars are discussed along with an observation that the issue is not receiving appropriate attention. The paper concludes that judgment and candor are called for in order to avoid needless risks while achieving objectives. Author
