Transformation and the Army

Intel Dump has a nice post on some radical changes in store for the U.S. Army as it adjusts to the current world instead of the world that used to be:
More than 100,000 Soldiers will move from "Cold War" jobs to positions such as military police and civil affairs as part of Army Transformation, Sgt. Maj. of the Army Kenneth Preston said.

"We have a lot of troops in `Cold War' jobs," Preston said. "I call these `high density low demand' fields. The Army is going to rebalance those people to 'high demand low density' fields like military police and civil affairs. Somewhere between 100,000 to 115,000 Soldiers will transform to new positions."

Seems pretty smart to me and will ease the burden on the reserves and guard, where many of those "high demand low density" fields were placed during the Cold War.

Good on the Army.
