A former civilian employee at Sierra Army Depot faces a two-count charge for conspiracy and theft of military equipment.
The technical name for one of the Army's communications networks is Warfighter Information Network-Tactical Increment Two. But some soldiers prefer to call it their digital guardian angel. Another calls it the holy grail of communication. Now one of the creators of the Army's WIN-T system is receiving prestigious recognition for his role in its creation. Patrick DeGroodt is Deputy Project Manager for the Department of the Army. He's a Service to America medal finalist in the National Security and International Affairs category. He explained the creation process on In Depth with Francis Rose.
Among ten topics the Army's new undersecretary says he's pondering: the service's seeming inability to convince policymakers of the need to keep a standing active duty force of about the size the nation has today, even during budget cuts.
Army bases and surrounding communities across the country would lose up to 80 percent of their military and civilian workforces if maximum cuts in both budget and force size go into effect at the end of the decade, according to worst-case scenario projections.
Lt. Gen. Robert Ferrell, the Army's CIO/G6, said the service now is requiring all enterprise software titles to be modernized, virtualized and migrated to an approved data center.
The Green Berets are an Army Special Operations Force tasked with five primary missions: unconventional warfare, foreign internal defense, special reconnaissance, direct action, and counter-terrorism. Key components of their training are language and cultural skills to work with foreign troops. Other duties include combat search and rescue (CSAR), counter-narcotics, counter-proliferation, hostage rescue, humanitarian assistance, and peacekeeping to name a few
An Army officer was convicted of violating three military laws including abusive sexual contact, kidnapping and assault.
The Army has initiated its investigation into the facts and circumstances surrounding the disappearance and capture of Sgt. Bowe R. Bergdahl from Combat Outpost Mest-Lalak in Paktika Province, Afghanistan on or about June 30, 2009. The Army has appointed as the investigating officer Maj. Gen. Kenneth R. Dahl, an Army officer with Afghanistan combat experience. The Army says the primary function of its investigation, as in any other investigation, is to ascertain the facts. With that being said, the Army's top priority remains Sgt. Bergdahl's health and reintegration.
The debate to change the Army's force structure is switching focus from "should they do it" to "how." One strategy is a Commission on the Structure of the Army. Frank Hoffman, a senior research fellow at the Institute for Strategic Studies at the National Defense University, tells In Depth with Francis Rose a commission would be a big step backwards in the effort to make the Army more affordable.
