Abstract : Every Chief of Staff of the United States Army has had his own vision for the institution. This paper examines the visions of three Chiefs of Staff of the Army during periods of significant change. It studies the visions of General of the Army George C. Marshall, General of the Army Omar N. Bradley, and General Gordon R. Sullivan. The paper sets forth a set of critical vision factors and a vision analysis model to determine the impact of their visions on the institution. It argues that the budget is the single factor that allows the vision to impact tbe institution while training and doctrine are the two factors that can be impacted in the absence of Congressional dollars.
