These are my personal views that do not necessarily represent the views of the Department of Defense or any element thereof.

It is my privilege have completed a three monograph series for the U.S. Army’s Strategic Studies Institute (SSI), where I have been an External Researcher with several chapters and three monographs published, since the mid-1990’s.

For a year now I have working on this series, Reinventing the U.S. Army. It now available in author pre-print form — critical comments are always welcome.

I have completed a Grand Strategy review that has not been done since 1953; and a Global Reality overview that provides a “ground truth” appraisal absent from joint acquisition calculations today.

For the first time, a US Army force structure is proposed that is rooted in both a coherent Grand Strategy, and a grasp of Global Reality. It is a moral Army — a three million soldier Army with no bases overseas and no contractors. It is a starting point for some deep soul searching among those charged with leading our Army forward.
