The Army Reserve wants to make it easier for soldiers in the active component of the Army to make their way back and forth to the reserve components. To do it, the Reserve will raise its standards for those who continue to serve.
The National Guard and Reserve will be key to implementing the Pentagon's plans for "reversible" cuts to military ground forces, the Defense Department's top policy official said Monday. DoD is still trying to figure out the best ways to keep at least part of the reserve component in an operational status after 10 years of war.
The Air Force expects to cut its end strength by roughly 10,000 under the new DoD strategy the Pentagon revealed last week. Also the Army's service chief indicated DoD plans to ask Congress for two more rounds of base realignments and closures.

The proposal includes the scaling back of several weapons systems, savings on personnel costs, along with an assurance from top DoD officials that even though the military will be smaller, it will be more agile and more capable.
The investigative agency that originally detailed huge management problems at Arlington National Cemetery a year and a half ago says there's been a dramatic improvement. The challenge now is maintaining the momentum.

The Air Force is hungry for energy like no agency in the federal government. The service's top energy official says they're trying to have a smaller appetite without hindering their mission.
The President and the Pentagon gave the rough outlines Thursday for how they plan to create a lean, but still effective military. Ground forces will shrink, capabilities in cyber, ISR, technology will grow.
The Defense Information Systems Agency has granted approval for Android-based mobile devices to connect to DoD networks, provided they're secured using a specific set of guidelines
In this edition of On DoD, we take a look back at one of the key events that made the military we have today what it is. 2011 was the 25th anniversary of the Goldwater-Nichols act. We marked the anniversary on Federal News Radio with a special series on how the major Defense reorganization made its way through Congress, and how lawmakers dragged the Pentagon, largely against its will, into a culture of jointness.
