We're building an Army that is a versatile mix of tailorable and networked organizations operating on a rotational cycle ... to provide a sustained flow of trained and ready forces for full spectrum operations ... and to hedge against unexpected contingencies ... at a tempo that is predictable and sustainable for our all-volunteer force. That's what we're doing. That's the direction we're headed. I believe it will give us exactly the kind of Army we'll need for the challenges of the 21st Century.
