Army's new chief looks to prep the force for large-scale combat
from Army Times
The Army's brigade combat teams have been gearing up over the past few years in an effort to reach higher readiness rates. But being ready at home station and being ready to deploy over the Atlantic Ocean to wage war in Eastern Europe are two very different undertakings, and a conflict at the scale imagined by current Pentagon leaders will require far more than a single brigade. "It's wonderful that we have a brigade, sitting maybe at Fort Campbell, that's at the highest level of readiness," said Army Chief of Staff Gen. James McConville in an interview with Army Times. "But we also need to get that brigade to where we need ... and that may be by airlift, it may be by sealift."
