Abstract:

Recent trends and the current operating environment have combined to provide a unique opportunity for change in the military accession process. Demand for savings, increased efficiency, and a return of noncommissioned officers to our operational Army have combined to create additional incentive for change. This paper is a critical assessment of that effort. Called Pinnacle, it is the Armys holistic change effort designed to reform USAREC and establish the base for future integration with MEPCOM and the other service components. Its successful implementation will increase the efficiency and effectiveness of our recruiting process and ensure the continued viability of our All-Volunteer Force for years to come.
