The Defense Department's new defense strategy, released earlier this year, "envisions a smaller, leaner Army that is agile, flexible, rapidly deployable and technologically advanced," according to a Congressional Research Service report, released by the Federation of American Scientists' Secrecy News.

Michael O'Hanlon, the director of research and a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution, discusses lessons learned from previous Army drawdowns.
