SENIOR LEADERS ARE SAYING

We will not be successful in the war on terror if we do not transform our capabilities. We will not be effective and relevant in the 21st century unless we become much more agile but with the capacity for a long-term, sustained level of conflict. Being relevant means having a campaign-quality Army with joint expeditionary capability. It must be an Army not trained for a single event like a track athlete, but talented across a broad spectrum like a decathlete. (Transcript)

Gen. Peter J. Schoomaker
Chief of Staff of the Army

TODAY'S FOCUS

2005 ARMY MODERNIZATION PLAN

The 2005 Army Modernization Plan describes how Army efforts are supporting transformation by retaining the best of current capabilities and developing new and improved ones using a comprehensive and balanced approach.

This document describes the modernization and investment strategies adopted to enhance the effectiveness of the Current Force while pursuing critical capabilities for the Future Force.

Along with the Army Science and Technology Master Plan, it provides the rationale and justification for the research, development, and acquisition (RDA) portion of the Army's program in support of Fiscal Year (FY) 2006 President's Budget (PB06).

This plan conforms to Army leadership guidance, which is reflected separately in the Army Strategic Planning Guidance, the Army Campaign Plan, and the 2004 Army Transformation Roadmap.

FINAL RUN SPOILS STRONG EFFORT FOR NEMECHEK, U.S. ARMY TEAM

When Joe Nemechek made his final pit stop with 43 laps remaining in Sunday's UAW-DaimlerChrysler 400 he was in third place with an excellent opportunity to challenge for the win. But a pit road miscue coupled with an unexplained tight-handling racecar in the closing laps at Las Vegas Motor Speedway dropped the U.S. Army driver to a 19th-place finish.
