HUNTSVILLE, Ala. — U.S. Army Secretary Mark Esper said the service of 2028 will be ready to fight any war, in his first major speech in the position, which laid out his vision for the future of the service.
“The Army of 2028 will be ready to deploy, fight and win decisively against any adversary, anytime and anywhere, in a joint, multidomain, high-intensity conflict, while simultaneously deterring others and maintaining its ability to conduct irregular warfare,” he said during his March 26 speech at the Association of the U.S. Army’s Global Force Symposium.
“The Army will do this through the employment of modern manned and unmanned ground combat vehicles, aircraft, sustainment systems and weapons, coupled with robust combined arms formations and tactics based on a modern war-fighting doctrine and centered on exceptional leaders and soldiers of unmatched lethality,” he added.
The Army is making some major changes in doctrine, organization, manning and training to achieve such a vision, according to Esper.
