In February 2012, I published an article in the Armed Forces Journal that argued senior uniformed leaders were not being totally honest with Congress and the American people. In the July/August edition of the Armed Forces Journal, I have written a new article suggesting that the Army's general officer corps needs to be reformed. An associated article in The Guardian emphasizes the necessity of this reform owing to the fact our leaders are on record as telling the American people that constrained budgets will result in a smaller and less capable Army - but that is not the only option available. There is another plan whereby the Army could be reduced to an affordable size but end up producing a force that has greater combat capability than the current force before reductions take place. Both articles will be posted here this week when they are published.
Future published works that the Army clears will be posted to this site. Please check back periodically for updates.
