The Army and the 1980's
ARMY WAR COLL CARLISLE BARRACKS PA
Pagination or Media Count:
What will the 1980s require of the US Army Increasingly, it is becoming apparent that certain fundamental changes are needed to enable the Army to cope with problems related both to the institution itself and to its resources. The former deal with the way we live and train, while the latter involve narrowing the gap between what is given for the Army to do and the means provided. The changes necessary will doubtless challenge many existing practices and assumptions. For example, we foresee increased importance for our non-NATO missions and a pressing need to strengthen the cohesiveness of military unit life. The scope of these challenges is such as to warrant the attention and commitment of all echelons. Our discussion of Army mission requirements in the 1980s will be divided into four parts 1. Strategic Assessment 2. Total Army Assessment 3. Renewal of the Total Army and 4. Required Actions.
