Gen. Raymond T. Odierno, Chief of Staff, U.S. Army

Only a few weeks ago, Army leadership was planning to shrink its force to levels unseen since before World War II. But that was before Islamic State terrorists threatened to take over Iraq and Syria, before Russia invaded Ukraine and before the U.S. began deploying 4,000 troops to West Africa to help control the Ebola outbreak.

He spoke with Emily Kopp at the Association of the Army Expo about the Army's next steps.

Budget constraints force Army to make tough choices about modernization

The Army's senior leaders have made clear for months that their service's end strength will have to decrease as a result of budget pressure. But the cutbacks can't be only to personnel. Some of the Army's major modernization priorities will have to be sidelined, at least for now.
