Summary
The U.S. Army's Cold War focus on the Soviet Union has shifted to fighting smaller conflicts against less formidable foes. Today's Army is also 30 percent smaller than it was a decade ago. In spite of those changes, the composition of the Army has not shifted markedly: the service remains almost equally divided between active-duty and reserve soldiers. A question under debate is whether that composition is well suited to the Army's current role. The Army hopes to make its force structure better suited to its current mission by converting some of the combat forces in the National Guard to support forces. That change would eliminate some of the excess combat forces; but it would not enable the Army to get to regional conflicts more quickly than it can today, nor would it improve the Army's ability to carry out peacekeeping operations. Finally, because the Army's plan would not reduce the overall size of the service, it would not yield significant savings; therefore, the Army may have difficulty finding the funds to acquire the modem weapons it will need
