25 Nov. Washington Times Op-Ed - Army Revamps for Flexibility.

Amid plans for a sweeping realignment of U.S. military services in Asia and the Pacific, the Army has begun extensive changes to become more flexible and expeditionary than it has been since the Vietnam War ended 30 years ago.

From Hawaii, headquarters of the Army in the Pacific, to the Pacific Northwest of the U.S. mainland, to Alaska, to South Korea and to Japan, the Army is being transformed, in the current buzzword of Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld.

Lt. Gen. John M. Brown, commanding general of the Army in the Pacific, says: "Almost every one of our brigades and divisions, and all of our major headquarters, will be undergoing transformation over the next two years to better enable us to fight the war on terrorism or engage in any other military operation."
