The U.S. Army remains at the forefront of modern warfare, consistently adapting and evolving to safeguard vital U.S. national security interests and meet the ever-changing challenges of today’s complex security environment. Maintaining its strength, edge, and combat credibility and preparing for future readiness requires continued investments, a commitment to modernization, and concerted efforts to prioritize and care for its people.

On March 21, the Strobe Talbott Center for Security, Strategy, and Technology at Brookings held a conversation with Army Chief of Staff General James C. McConville on the Army’s modernization and the state of its readiness, its support of the National Defense Strategy, its commitments to recruiting and retaining its service members, and lessons it has learned from the war in Ukraine.
