Abstract : Command priorities into the next century will bring an era of dealing with regional warfighting and stewardship. Building Combat Power deals with stewardship at theater level. The paper argues that every warfighting commander needs to prioritize professional financial management 'up front' to survive the challenges of modern military operations. The aim is to combine the two primary core competencies--finance operations and resource management operations; and advance the three features of modularity, connectivity, and mobility. At minimum, the paper describes how Force XXI Commanders will tailor and apply their modern land force finance capabilities across the full range of military operations. Relatedly, the paper builds an awareness to those who would have direction of, or would impact on, the soldiers and civilians who actually do financial management during operations. The target audience is, therefore, Army planners, interagency organizations, and wanting strategic level commanders.
