The Trump Administration’s emerging National Security Strategy seems more enthused about U.S. air and sea power than it is about land power. As usual, the Army is not getting rewards from the political system commensurate with its sacrifices. One reason why is that the Army is not very adept at telling its story, particularly the modernization piece. Aside from the fact that it can’t seem to stick with a plan, the way it proposes to execute key weapons initiatives often seems counter-intuitive, if not downright inexplicable. The incoming Secretary of the Army says a key part of his job will be to provide the public with a clear vision of where the service needs to be to sync up with national strategy. It’s about time.
