Abstract:

Americas Army is focused on the 21st Century. Force XXI is already underway and concepts are being developed for the Army After Next. In both, Special Operation Forces SOF have key roles to fulfill. As part of the SOF, there is a need to define where the Armys premier infantry special operations unit, the 75th Ranger Regiment, fits into the Army of the 21st Century. This paper examines two questions. First, what roles and missions can be derived for the Ranger Force from visions of a 2lst Century Army Secondly, based upon those roles and missions what changes need to be addressed in the area of integration into Force XXIForce Development and doctrine The paper concludes with recommendations based upon this analysis.
