SENIOR LEADERS ARE SAYING
"Implementation of the repeal of Don't Ask, Don't Tell would be a major cultural and policy change in the middle of a war. It would be implemented by a force and leaders that are already stretched by the cumulative effects of almost a decade of war … At this time, I would not recommend going forward, given everything the Army has on its plate."
- Chief of Staff of the Army Gen. George W. Casey Jr., though supporting the eventual repeal of the 'Don’t Ask, Don't Tell', does not recommend it now during the wartime.

WHAT THEY'RE SAYING
"We've learned a lot from each other. We come from different cultures and we have different ways of doing things, but we're both wishing for the same thing. When you have something like that, the result can only be positive."

Army Science and Technology
What is it?
The U.S. Army's Science and Technology (S&T) program is the Army's investment in transformational capabilities that will enhance current and future force capabilities. The Soldier is the centerpiece of all Army S&T investments.
What has the Army done?
The S&T community has demonstrated its response to the demands of the Army's deployed Soldiers. The 27the Army Science Conference (ASC) theme, "Transformational Army Science and Technology -- Enabling Full-Spectrum Operations" conveys the dedication of the Science and Technology community to technological innovation and its practical demonstration.
Sponsored by the Assistant Secretary of the Army (Acquisition, Logistics and Technology), the ASC is a biennial event that began at West Point, New York, in 1957. Since its inauguration, the ASC has grown to become a preeminent event with more than 1,500 individuals from 30 countries attending.
This forum provides a unique opportunity for U.S. Army scientists and engineers to explore the synergies to be gained and lessons to be learned from cross disciplinary efforts in science and technology.
Why is this important to the Army?
Army S & T looks at every opportunity to respond to evolving threats and collaborate with its partners in developing the military capability to deter conflict, prevail in war, and succeed in a wide range of contingencies in any operational environment. As a community, S&T knows the dramatic impact technology brings to the battlefield and that its enabled capabilities are critical to the Soldier.
The ASC is a unique opportunity for the scientists and engineers to gather and discuss the latest developments that will enable capabilities, which will empower, unburden, and protect the Soldier in an environment of persistent conflict.
What efforts does the Army plan to continue the future?
Army S & T is committed to demonstrating and fielding those advanced technologies which will give the Army the edge against adaptive enemies. As the Army modernizes and builds its future capabilities; it will continue to depend heavily on revolutionary breakthroughs. maintain and enhance military superiority. Through demonstrated innovation the Army will continuously provide those capabilities that empower, unburden and protect the American Soldier.
