When the Global War on Terrorism became this nation’s top priority, how did this affect the U.S. Army’s other longstanding commitments? How should the Army adjust to the altered landscape? The author here summarizes the thoughts of a group of RAND Arroyo Center researchers who found five main demands that the Army must be able to meet: increased deployments, a broader range of capabilities, greater use of the transformation process to meet these goals, high demand for scarce skills, and a more flexible overseas basing structure. The author explores ways to meet each of these demands while not neglecting the Army’s other commitments.
