Is Army Drawing Down Too Quickly?

Army Times reports that “the Army will continue to reduce promotions and force out soldiers in 2015, even as manpower officials voice concern the service may be drawing down too fast and deeply.”  

“’We are very concerned that because of the strategic considerations, we may be driving very close to the curve as we move forward,’ said Lt. Gen. James McConville, the service’s chief personnel officer (G-1), in an interview with Army Times.”  

“The budget picture remains unclear at the same time the service is ramping up global missions. This has led to uncertainties relating to the future size of the Army, and as a result, McConville cannot accurately project how many soldiers will be forced out of service by the retention boards that will meet in 2015.”
