History has many examples of the United States military emerging from conflict
and facing major challenges with respect to rebuilding and retooling during the period before the next conflict.
Although currently engaged on two fronts of war, the Army will emerge one day from
these to once again face the need to reset and refit on the road to preparing for the
nation's next conflict.
This AY-10 USAWC resident student paper examines key challenges United States leaders will face in that
not so distant future and makes recommendations for those leaders to consider in order to
prepare the Army for follow-on missions.
