Abstract : The purpose of this paper is to propose a program for developing Army strategists. The scope of an educational program in strategy includes a continuum of theoretical issues important in strategy formulation ranging from concepts of national interests to actual use of military force. Military strategic concepts are divided into national military strategy, coordinative strategy, and operational strategy. An educational and developmental program leading to ASI (Additional Siute Identifier) 6Z starting with identification of prospective strategists is discussed.
