The Army did not prepare a comprehensive plan detailing how it was going to put into operation, coordinate, and supervise the reorganization of its forces following the reduction in combat forces after the Vietnam War. As a result, the Army has had numerous problems, and further changes may be needed to set up the combat capability the Army seeks.

Planning was not adequate for accomplishing the reorganization and subsequent changes. The Army may have activated too many units too soon, and units activated over a year ago still do not have the proper mix of personnel and equipment to conduct effective training.
