Once the Cold War ended, America's military leaders found themselves grappling with a number of new challenges. This PBS program examines how the U.S. Army is trying to evaluate and modernize its technology while also studying how its troops should be deployed in the world today. Such experts as Lawrence Korb, the former Assistant Secretary of Defense under President Reagan, and Fred Kagan, who teaches courses on military history at West Point, share their views. Andrew Krepinevich, executive director of the Center for Strategic and Budgetary Analysis, also discusses his concerns, noting his belief that the United States needs to develop a more coherent plan for military preparedness that can meet all current and future needs. Political agendas and other forces are also examined in terms of how they continue to affect the way the military is funded and trained to protect America.
