Since 1950, the U.S. Army's budget has waxed and waned on a roughly 20-year cycle. As the Army's role in Iraq and Afghanistan diminishes over the next decade, it will be entering the waning phase of this budget cycle. In this report, the authors examine historic trends in the Army's largest budget accounts (military personnel, operations and maintenance, and procurement) to provide a context for decisions relating to future spending and explore the recent public discourse on cuts in military spending. They also discuss the potential implications of these cuts.
