Abstract : The end of the Cold War has fundamentally changed the way the US Army must deploy. Power projection now requires Army units to be able to move from post to port to theater in rapid succession. The deployments of the last six years have proven that the Army is not trained and ready to quickly deploy in support of the nation's interests. Army leadership at every level must reassess their deployment training and readiness an make the necessary systemic corrections now. This paper researches the problems and mistakes experienced during past deployments and recommends solutions that can be implemented at company through Department of the Army staff levels.
