Abstract : The purpose of the paper was to examine the officer force structure and question whether we have the appropriate mix of armor and infantry officers in the Army; and the impact of this on career progression within the two branches; and finally, what the Army can do or should be doing. In line with the conclusions the author makes, there are short-term and long-range recommendations - the recommendations are designed to provide greater equity in career management goals and actions for the two branches, and the author believes should bring about greater equity in force management.
