Currently, the Army relies on three separate and distinct stove piped and uncoordinated methodologies to achieve the requisite number of officers with the appropriate grade and skill needed to accomplish its mission. This has resulted in gaps and seams that can be closed if it incorporates a holistic, comprehensive approach to recruiting officer candidates, accessing them according to the needs of the Army, and retaining them based upon quality and desired skills for its officer corps.
