The Army brought its top brass to Washington this week for its annual Association of the U.S. Army Expo. Among the dignitaries, an unusual recipient of the Medal of Honor.

Adkins tells Emily Kopp how he learned he would receive the nation's highest military award.

He spoke with Emily Kopp at the Association of the U.S. Army Expo.
Only a few weeks ago, Army leadership was planning to shrink its force to levels unseen since before World War II.

Now the Army's Chief of Staff, Gen. Ray Odierno, suggests the Army and political leaders need to rethink their plans. He spoke with Emily Kopp at the Association of the Army Expo about the Army's next steps.

In the name of efficiency, the Army is making what it calls a big change in the way that it manages e-mail. The service said the move is designed to save millions of dollars at a time when the secretary of Defense is mandating significant savings.
