Abstract:

The Army recently conducted its second Army Transformation Wargame, Vigilant Warriors 01 at Carlisle Barracks, Pennsylvania, from 22-27 April 2001. In this wargame, the depiction of a future major theater war served to illuminate, at a significant level of resolution, the emerging Objective Force concepts and capabilities needed to achieve strategic responsiveness and full-spectrum dominance. This initial report provides a preview of the issues, insights, and conclusions derived during the wargame. It will be followed by a more detailed analysis highlighting the conduct of the wargame and more important, what was learned about the Objective Force. Ultimately, the lessons learned from Vigilant Warriors Ol support the intellectual underpinnings that frame the U.S. Armys importance to the Nations security and interests.
