Abstract:

The upcoming year will prove pivotal to the U.S. Army. The modified priorities of the current administration, rapidly evolving civil-military engagements overseas, two ongoing campaigns, spiraling technologies development, the need for recapitalization, and declining resources will require decisions from Army leaders in a compressed time frame. Almost any course of action chosen in response to previous priorities will affect force structure the size and balance between the operational and institutional Army and the organizational design of the operational Army the composition and command and control structure of our operational forces. By definition, these experimental modifications related to force structure and design will reduce capacity. The Armys leadership must make choices that optimize its ability to accomplish the mission with less manpower.
