Abstract:

The Cold war has ended and we face a new and emerging set of threats and challenges to peace and security. In order to face these new threats the Army must change to better meet the requirements of the Warfighting CINCs. What is called for is the creation of Mobile Strike Forces that are regionally oriented and responsive to the CINCs. These forces will be standing organizations specifically trained, focused and tailored for its rapid reaction role. They will be self-contained, mobile, and lethal, with a robust Command and Control infrastructure. The Mobile Strike Force will be able to react across the spectrum of conflict. In order for the Army to stay relevant to the needs of the CINCs the Army must adapt its organization. The Mobile Strike Force will be the CINCs Rapid Reaction Force of the future.
