SUMMARY

The Millennial Generation will be entering the highest levels of military service in the coming years and they will be the military's strategic leaders in 2025. The military must begin examination of the generational profile of this cohort in order to match its characteristics with the skills required for the military's strategic leaders in the coming years, tempering those characteristics that might cause national derailment of the Profession of Arms and nurturing those that show positive synchronization with the future landscape.

This AY-10 USAWC Resident student paper provides practical advice to today's leaders concerning the development of this significant cohort.
