The Army’s New Regionally Aligned Readiness and Modernization Model

  • Author(s):
  • Andrew Feickert

The Army defines readiness as the capability of its forces to conduct the full range of military operations, including the defeat of all enemies regardless of the threats they pose. Readiness, then, is a function of how well units are manned, equipped, trained, and led. Congress, in its lawmaking, oversight, and authorization and appropriations roles, plays a vital role in ensuring the Army is capable of conducting its full range of military operations.

In the past, the Army has claimed it has suffered from poor readiness due to a number of factors, including personnel, equipment, training, a high operational tempo (generally defined as a soldier’s and/or unit’s time away from home station for training or operations), and lack of funding.
