Abstract : This Strategic Research Project depicts a budget strategy that provides a framework to sustain the US Army with limited national resources in what could prove to be a prolonged period of peace. This proposed budget strategy has four principal features. A need to identify the types of threats the Army may face in the 21st century; develop the doctrine that will enable the Army to fight and win our nation's wars; identify technology concepts that the Army should develop into weapon systems, and finally educate Congress and the American people on budget requirements to ensure that the US Army will be able to keep up with change during a period of when national resources are used for social issues.
